That typing "Stanley Turner Lewes" into Google would have been quicker that typing out that post and provided a lot more useful information than you'll get here?

In 1934, rich local timber merchant, Albert Turner, gave 40 acres of land to Lewes, and built a Pavilion in memory of his brother Stanley. He formed a Trust in Stanley's name, and decreed that the land should be used ‘for Public Recreation and for no other purpose’. The Trust became the responsibility of Lewes District Council in 1974. Lewes RFC has used the Ground since 1938, as have Priory Cricket Club, with whom we formed Lewes Sports Club, and in 1979 part funded the Clubroom.

Specifically, I understand it is the responsibility of a charitable trust, of which the District Councillors are personally trustees.
