Harry Potter: Appeal to fans of 'Harry Potter' not to leave socks at Dobby's memorial, decision taken due to environment
Fans have left so many socks at Dobby's memorial that it's starting to become a matter of environmental concern. This is where Dobby's death scene in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1' was filmed.
The craze of the Harry Potter franchise, based on the famous author J.K. Rowling's novel Harry Potter, is still seen among the people. Plus all Potterheads understand the importance of Dobby and his socks. And that's why it makes sense for fans to leave their socks at Dobby's memorial site. But due to the fans leaving such socks, trouble has also started and now all the fans of 'Harry Potter' have been urged by the environmental officials not to leave socks at Dobby's memorial site.
Fans of the 'Harry Potter' franchise have been asked not to leave socks on at Freshwater West Beach in Pembrokeshire, Wales, where Dobby's memorial site stands. Reportedly, fans left so many socks at Dobby's memorial that it has become a matter of environmental concern. This is where Dobby's death scene in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1' was filmed. So a memorial was erected by the fans for Dobby and they started leaving socks there as a tribute. Now the increasing number of socks has increased the concern of the officials.
Environmental officials from conservation charity National Trust Wales recently conducted an eight-month review of the site and allowed the monument to remain after seeing the socks, but fans were warned not to leave the socks. In a statement, the National Trust for Wales said, "Dobby's memorial will remain open to the public at Freshwater West." The trust is asking fans to take pictures only if they help protect the monument. In their review they observed that items such as socks, paint chips can enter the marine environment and food chain and endanger wildlife. After this, the fans have been urged not to leave socks at the memorial.
