  • I emailed 2 weeks ago regarding the state of the footpath from walsingham ave to the a6 and have not had a reply. the path is in some places overgrown with nettles and brambles making it difficult to walk through particularly with a pushchair or someone in a disability buggy. schools start back a week on friday when the pathway becomes even busier. one man with a strimmer could have it sorted within an hour so please can something be done asap.

    Pathway is still very overgrown,it is basically down to single file in places and if using a wheelchair or buggy you are likely to get stung by nettles

  • Path is very overgrown causing problems for pedestrians as it is a very busy path in both directions. If someone has a pram/buggy it is difficult to stop and let them pass. Next week when schools return the path will be very busy in both directions with children walking to school. This was originally reported in July!!
