Help us shape how Rushmere Country Park is managed and developed for the future!

We are looking for enthusiastic park users to assist the Rushmere User Group (RUG for short). The group meets 4 times a year with the next meeting planned for January 2020.

The aim of this group is to ensure that the interests of the various groups who use, or have an interest in, Rushmere and its surrounding areas are better understood and shared.

The group exchanges ideas about improving the public’s enjoyment of the areas and overcoming any conflicts which might sometimes arise.

The group consists of representatives from the following:

Heath and Reach Parish Council

Soulbury Parish Council

Great Brickhill Parish Council

Local residents

Young parents

Visitors who have a disability

Bedfordshire Natural History Society

Local walking groups


Horse Riders

Dog Walkers

Rushmere volunteers

We currently have three positions vacant and need one representative for young parents, one to represent walkers and another to broaden our understanding of disability issues.

If you or anyone you know may be interested in filling any of these positions, please contact us for further information.
