A MOTHER has called for an overgrown pathway near a school to be trimmed back.

Kate Everitt, 40, of Aberdeen Close, Stamford, walks her two sons to Malcolm Sargent Primary School and nursery daily using the alleyway on the west boundary of the school.

She works as a childminder so also accompanies the children she looks after on the path.

Over the summer bushes alongside the path have become overgrown and have not been trimmed since the start of term this month.

Kate is worried the thorny branches could hurt children.

She said: “Trying to get three toddlers to walk in front of you and avoid the large thorns hanging over the path is a struggle.”

Lincolnshire County Council said the plants growing over the path belonged to the school and a number of residents and it would be getting in touch with them.
