The 4C’s, Cambridge Town’s friendly and active club welcomes members with all levels of experience. Club members participate in a wide range of outdoor activities, including rock climbing, caving, mountaineering, and walking.

Now that the pandemic restrictions are easing, the club trips are back in full swing again. But note that these are subject to change / cancellation at short notice if the government guidelines change, or if we’re unable to book a hut / campsite.

All participants on trips are expected to make every effort to ensure that they are in good health, both for their wellbeing and the wellbeing of fellow members.  It is reasonable to expect that participants on trips will at least have had a negative lateral flow test prior to joining a trip.  Drivers have every right not to accept passengers if they believe that those passengers have not taken every reasonable precaution to safeguard their fellow members.

We’ve also now resumed the weekly Kelsey Kerridge / Free Press meetups. We recognise that KK is, at times, a packed indoor space and we encourage members to take reasonable personal precautions. We look forward to seeing you at the wall.
