As its only 8ft long, rip it all out and reconcrete with a stronger mix of concrete ballast and cement.
Waste of time trying to repair top of concrete.

We would advise that you rip it up and start again. The mix doesnt sound like its strong enough, and so starting from scratch would be your best option and cheapest in the long run.
I would say the best option would be to have it done proffesionally as this would offer you a guarentee for the work.

trying to repair the path would be of no use, remove the old concrete and buy ready mixed bags from any diy outlet you just mix with water. perfect for a small project like yours no need for a mixer mix one bag at a time in a wheel barrow or on a board hope this is of help to you.
