Cambridgeshire Fencing Club to re-open on 10th September
We are looking to re-open the club from Thursday 10th September for the Autumn Term. New measures are to be introduced to minimise the risk of spread of the Coronavirus. Please see other pages on this website for more information.
Please see http://camfc.org.uk/covid-19-fencing-at-cfc/ for more details.
We are very sad to announce the passing of Michael Lewis, who supported our Club in a variety of roles, including Chairman. His valuable support was key to keeping fencing alive in Cambridge, both at Club and County level for many years. Mike was so supportive of fencing and generous with his time. Below is a message from his wife, Caroline:
“It is with great sadness I have to say that Mike died on Sunday (21st July). He had fought prostate cancer for several years but it finally got him.
Fencing was such a big part of his life for many years and gave him so much pleasure.
I include funeral arrangements for anyone that would like to attend: The funeral will be on Friday August 9th, 12:00 noon at the Cambridge Crematorium next to A14, and afterwards the Three Horseshoes in Madingley.
Many thanks, Caroline”
We are very sad to announce the passing of Pat Faircloth, the club’s longest serving member and dedicated supporter. Over the last few decades she has introduced literally hundreds of people in Cambridgeshire to the sport and been an ever present support at the Cambridge Open Air Competitions. Her son wrote:
It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that my mum passed away peacefully on Thursday, 31st January 2019 in Addenbrookes.
I am immensely proud of her involvement in the Cambridge fencing club. I know it brought her great pleasure her whole life.
