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.
