Pavement outside 68 Broad Street HP5 3DX

Reported via mobile in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 11:00, Wednesday 21 February 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5608828.

On my way to Chiropodist on Monday 19 February 2024. Crossed over from bus stop towards Chiropodist foot caught on very very dangerous raised pavement, causing me to stumble very badly almost through chiropodist glass door. Thankfully, very kind gentleman caught me, or I would have had, very serious accident. Bearing in mind, I am almost 84 years of age, had a broken neck in 2018, which took 2 years out of my life. Still under Hospital for this injury, so, you can imagine how upset I was. Got cab home & have been indoors since, hence, delay in this report. Unfortunately, no photograph, but, sure, you cannot miss this hazard. Well aware of financial issues today’s climate, but, & you probably hear complaints like this regularly, but, our Pavements in Chesham are in a dreadful sad state. Many elderly, disabled, & even young people have to use them , so, would be very grateful if our pavements from Broad Street right along down to the Vale/Greenway could be improved, even, at least one side of the road. Many thanks.
