Hi there, I do not normally raise issues but I have felt after yesterday and this morning something needs to be done! I live off the wellmeadow estate on Dane’s bridge.. and walk my son down the river walk every day onto mill street, I am totally shocked at the state of the over grown edges both side of the river all the way from the bottom of seven street to the well meadow estate! Yesterday we walked down and there was a man in a wheel chair and a lady with push chair they could not pass each other and then my son got stung by nettles.. it’s a complete disgrace, so today we walked out of well meadow on to the main road and (hospital street) and I am so angry the foot path in two places is impassable with brambles and nettles that we had to walk in the road!! Totally unsafe I have attached pictures of the river walk but couldn’t take pictures this morning of the road as I had to hold onto my 4 year old son while cars shotpast as we walked on the road side ! Anyone in a wheel chair or aimage4.jpegpushair won’t get through! This is disgrace we pay taxes for the town to be kept looked after, and we are paying more for a wall that was fixed yet the town is going down hill! This is a heath and safety matter now as both routes for people needing to use the walk ways cannot! Can this please be addressed other wise I will have no option but to got to local press and social media which I don’t want to as the council already get enough bad press with the state if the rest of the town! Many thanks Jodie Woodward 07907495668
