In accordance with the Government's Tier 4 restrictions, for London and the South East, alongside Public Health England advice, we have made updated changes to our site restrictions. All scheduled on-site events and activities remain cancelled at this time until we are confident that there is no longer a risk to the Chelsea Pensioners. Safeguarding our resident community is our paramount concern.
