For 40 years Wheatley Parish Council owned fields at Holton were managed by a committee representing both Oxfordshire County Council (education) and Parish Council to provide sporting facilities for local inhabitants and those in education.
This joint use scheme ended in August 2015 without chance of renewal or extension. The sports field trust was formed to lease the grounds from Wheatley Parish Council and thus manage the facility as an independent body. The lease was signed 28th February 2018
Wheatley Playing Field Trust has four principal aims; these are to inspire participation in sport, to promote community interaction, to provide sporting and changing facilities for Wheatley Park School and to act in an environmentally responsible way.
