Dr Mr (or indeed Mrs or Ms) Councillor (of whichever council is responsible),
Once again (seems almost annual) Autumn is here, the leaves have fallen, they are now calf-deep in many places, getting slushy (and slippy), and will compact (and get slippy), or trap under frost/ice (and...).
Any chance of collecting some and disposing of them preferably BEFORE they become treacherous?
