Could we please have a grit bin placed near the pathway where I live the paths are like an ice rink

Reported via mobile in the Grit Bin - damaged/replacement category anonymously at 07:57, Sun 5 December 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3160432.

The pathway next to my property is left like an ice rink due to kids sledging down the hill and being compacted by parents and children going to and from school. I'm disabled and can't access nearby bins but the ice on this pathway means I can't get out and people fall every year. There is a little car park at the end of hood road as you follow road round which would be an ideal placement for many of us here.
