Uneven footpath starting in front of 77 Manor Road, St Anne's Care Home for the Elderly. My mother is in Royal London Hospital right now with bleeding on the brain as a result of a fall on the uneven pavement in front of her residence. She fell in the same place 3 years ago, in Sept 2013. Other older and younger people have also fallen there. I am a fit 56 years old and have tripped and almost fallen there many times. What seem like minor inconvenient irregularities to some, are potentially life-threatening to the elderly of St Anne's who often have osteoporosis, and need to use this route to get from the care home to their doctor appointments and to get necessities. Repairing the pavement on Manor Road between Heathland/ Bouverie Road and Stoke Newington High Street must be given priority.
