The extensive gardens are among the most beautiful features of Manor Fields. All parts of the grounds are communal but remember that Manor Fields values its tranquil environment, so please respect your neighbours and keep noise to a minimum. The area between the Heath gate and the woodland copse, and the sunken garden around the ornamental pond are designated quiet areas.
Dogs must be on a short lead anywhere on the estate: they are not allowed on the main lawn or sunken garden between 1 May and 30 September but
may be taken on to the grassed spaces behind the houses, including areas set aside for barbecues. No more than one dog or cat may be kept in each flat. Dog owners, including visitors, must scoop up any dirt that their pets deposit.
■ Skateboards, rollerblades, children’s scooters and children’s bicycles are not allowed on any of the roads on the estate without adult supervision. Kites, drones and similar devices may not be flown on the estate.
■ The speed limit is 15 mph on the estate roads and must not be exceeded.
■ Climbing trees, swinging from the branches or using trees for exercise regimes are prohibited for safety reasons and to protect the trees from damage.
■ Foxes are wild animals and must not be fed or encouraged in any way. They can spread disease, dig up the flowerbeds and pose a threat to the safety of children.
■ Do not play radios or musical instruments in the gardens, or leave toys or furniture in any areas of the grounds overnight, as they may be removed.
■ The main lawn is ideal for children, as there is plenty of room to play. Soft balls may be used by toddlers and small children, but other ball games are not allowed in case of damage to vehicles or property. Reflecting Civil Aviation Authority guidelines, drones are not permitted on the estate.
