The “welcome to Northampton” sign. The post closest to the footpath has a dangerous hole in it close to the ground

This sign is in an awful state of disrepair and every day I walk passed it worried my young daughter could scrape her leg, or the dog could cut himself. It’s a busy footpath and when needing to socially distance means you inevitably have to go near the sign at times.
