Sister cities of Rushmoor
Rushmoor is a local government district and borough in Hampshire, England. It covers the towns of Aldershot and Farnborough.
It was formed on 1 April 1974 by the merger of the borough of Aldershot and the Farnborough urban district.
The borough took its name from Rushmoor Arena, a military showground constructed at Rushmoor Bottom in 1923. In May 2000, a referendum was held to on whether to change the name of the borough. Two alternative names were suggested in place of Rushmoor: Aldershot and Farnborough or Farnborough and Aldershot. In the event, more than 81% of those who voted chose to retain the name, on a turnout of 29%.
Rushmoor's population has grown from 1,366 in 1801, through 39,616 in 1901 to over 90,000 in 2001.
In 2006, Rushmoor gained a Silver Gilt award in the South and South East in Bloom awards.
Rushmoor is twinned with Oberursel in Germany, Meudon in France and Sulechów in Poland.
