About Rushmere Country Park

Rushmere Country Park is a great place to discover nature and enjoy outdoor leisure pursuits.



Support us

Dormouse Appeal

The Doormouse is an endangered species yet we've been successful in helping this lovely creature to thrive in Maulden Wood - but we need your help to ensure we can continue this work and make a real difference.



Target amount: £500.00

Amount raised: £0.00


Restoring Shire Oak Heath Appeal

Help us raise funds to restore neighbouring Shire Oak Heath and bring it into the park. The current owners, recognising the work of The Greensand Trust to improve the surrounding area and habitats, have agreed to transfer the land to us on the understanding that we launch a public appeal to help raise the funds to secure the site and its restoration.



Target amount: £50,000.00

Amount raised: £0.00
