Sign up now for this year’s Walk for Cuba – Sunday 13th July 2014
Join CSC members and supporters, family and friends on a solidarity Walk for Cuba in the beautiful Chess valley in the Buckinghamshire countryside, just outside London.
The Walk for Cuba is just over 6 miles through woods, beside fields and marshes, across the river, along country lanes taking in some amazing views, over rolling terrain with no steep slopes. There will be a co-ordinated refreshment stop at one of the historic pubs along the way. A shorter walk is also possible. Everyone is welcome.
