Oxfordshire moves into Tier 4 December 2020 

We are sharing Oxfordshire County Council’s information and advice on the Tier 4 restrictions and the implications.

COVID-19 symptoms

If you think you or someone you live with has symptoms of COVID-19 please visit the NHS COVID-19 webpages or call NHS on 111 for more advice or details on COVID-19 testing.

Resources within Wheatley

With the second lockdown essential businesses (supermarkets, food shops) are able to stay open. Other businesses have adapted to provide takeaways only and others have unfortunately had to close for the time being.

All grass root sports and indoor facilities has been cancelled or closed and this  includes the tennis courts at Holton Playing Fields. All three parish council owned play areas will remain open.

Wheatley is lucky to be surrounded by open countryside with many footpaths to surrounding villages or to the River Thame for us to walk.
