Steps Bridge Walk - 6 March 2018 - Apologies 

Due to a traffic incident, the road through Newton Poppleford was closed to eastbound traffic. The walk leader tried to intercept OVA members at the start of the diversion but there was no prospect of getting to the NP car park in a reasonable time. 

The walk went ahead - a lovely walk with a Cream Tea to end. However, the daffodils were not yet out in numbers but gave a tantalising impression of what they will be like over the next few weeks.
