Moss on footpath

Reported via desktop in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 20:55, Tue 11 October 2022

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3883699.

The footpath from the end of Hambye Close through to Church Lane is becoming covered in moss. Last year it became very slippery and I fell over while walking along this path, as I had just had a hip replacement I was concerned that I hadn’t done any damage to my hip. As this path is used by many people cutting through to the church I am concerned that nobody else should fall. I spoke to the people cutting the grass along the pathway and they suggested I got in touch with the council. I hope that something can be done to solve this problem.
