I've been living in Swanage since July with my family. Everyone thought I was a grockle until November, always getting looks in shops. Hearing comments about grockles and wishing them gone from locals is always unsettling, I would imagine even more so if you are one. Now settled I'm fed up with hearing moans about how dead the town is in winter. It's a myth, I know because I see many walkers and climbers and daytrippers all the time, I used to be one, weekends are always buzzing. I say get over yourselves, and sell the town in winter. Shutting shops for a couple of months, whats that all about? Grockles are your livelihood, be nice to them.
