Due to the current COVID-19 Government regulations and the need to keep members and the community safe, the Rotary Club of Chelsea has no option, but to cancel the 2020 Art Show due to be held in June.

We are all facing unprecedented times and we hope you  stay safe and well and support us again next year.
