Surely dogs should be on leads in the Manor Gardens all year round? a/ Easy detection of poop to immediately clear away; b/ protection of the sunken gardens and herbaceous borders from damage; c/ litter bins no longer to be emptied and savaged; d/ stopping dogs leaping into the pond and harming its contents. They should go through the gates to Gildredge Park for free running with enjoyable open spaces! I am a dog lover. Happy Christmas everybody.
