Donna said: "It was that overgrown, nobody could get through because of the nettles and overgrown bushes.

"So, Alison decided to take it upon herself to do the best she could."

Alison's daughter Rachel also rolled up her sleeves to help.

After being shared on Facebook page, dozens of people commented, praising Alison for her kindness - and hard work.

One commented: "That's lovely. My little girl nettled herself this morning on the way to school walking down there."

Another said: "Well done, amazing job, so kind of you thinking of others."
