Overgrown Nettles - Dangerous to Young Children

Throughout the path that offers a pedestrian cut-through from Evesham Place/Grove Road to Shottery Fields there are an abundance of overgrown nettles. I use the path to take my 1-year-olds to nursery and it has become increasingly difficult to get through without nettles reaching into their buggy. This morning I passed an elderly lady who was having an equal amount of trouble trying to avoid getting stung. The problem is particularly significant behind St. Andrew's Crescent properties.
