  • This has got worse, due to the rain, not being able to use the path, the grass is a bog & slippery. My husband uses a walking stick as he has Multiple Sclerosis, he has already slipped several times. My question is if he was to slip & hurt himself, who would we claim from? You as you maintain the grass or the residents who have not cut back the bushes which are blocking the path that you maintain? A lot of people who use this path have expressed their frustration as nothing has been done
