Gail Hume of Stretton Sugwas warns of the danger of the overgrown footpath

The overgrown footpath at Stretton Sugwas means residents are walking in the road instead.

Further down the road the path is tidy thanks to the efforts of a resident.

A HAZARD has been created by Herefordshire Council’s failure to cut back vegetation along Stretton Sugwas footpath.

This has been a problem in recent years and pre- dates the current situation.

I have tried walking the path but didn’t even get as far as the worst bit – it was too wet, raining and I didn’t fancy walking in the road.

This is a regularly used path by parents with young children, but you certainly couldn’t walk with them or take them in a pushchair at the present time without risking scratches from brambles or stings from nettles.

Some people have given up and are using the road which is a dangerous course of action and it could be an accident waiting to happen.

There is more traffic along here now and we want people walking safely on the footpath.

What a difference there is where a resident has taken it upon himself to keep the area by the church tidy.

Thank-you to them for that.

Perhaps the council could do the same.
