Dear Sir/Madam, The state of the footpath outside our of house is becoming unbearable. It’s been bad for several years but has failed significantly since the winter. The surface is completely uneven in places and our children have fallen over numerous times. We recently had an incident with our daughter who clipped the exposed drain cover on her scooter, causing her to fly over the handlebars. Luckily, we’ve managed to avoid any serious injuries apart from cuts and grazes but I think it’s only a matter of time. It is exceptionally frustrating because it’s seems to be the only footpath in Holmer Green that has been allowed to deteriorate in such a way! With respect, please could you consider a new foot path for the benefit of our children and the other young families who live next door to us. Kindest Regards
