Ottery St Mary Paths Partnership - OSM P3
P3 is an initiative to ensure that the entire rights of way network in the OSM Parish is legally defined, properly maintained and well publicised. The main aim of the scheme is to improve and maintain the condition of the local rights of way and keep them open and in use. Funded by Devon County Council, P3 is designed to encourage community involvement and the enjoyment of the public rights of way. Devon County Council works in partnership with Parish/Town Councils, landowners and local voluntary groups.

Classes will carry on throughout the year should you wish for an ‘encore’.
Three courses are available:
‘Bonjour’:a course for beginners to enable you to learn quickly with a minimum of efforts. (Please note this course will not be running due to lack of interest.)
