Village Logo

We are hugely indebted to Ignition Strategic Design, Bath, for the design of our village logo and who also took into consideration that this should evoke a strong sense of place, differentiating Bulkington from other parishes and in particular our namesake in Warwickshire. www.ignition.uk.com

However, the RAF are hoping to organise another similar event for September. Details will be advertised locally nearer the time when arrangements have been finalised.


Great Bulkington Railway - big success

The recent April 2018 Open Day was incredibly well attended by the public and very successful (financially) - but very hard work for all the crew – For once, all our publicity appears to have worked 100%. The weather was chilly but dry - All the crew were just about on their knees by around 1600 hrs after 89 trips (just under 17 miles) around the track. I was very grateful to our guest visitors Ralph & Rachael for taking on some of the driver and guard duties in our hour of need. Everyone worked really hard to satisfy the endless demands for rides which started before we were even open at 1300 hrs. Thankfully, all our happy visitors went home just after 1600 hours! The Peak 45 (with its new large batteries) worked for the entire afternoon faultlessly - but the Class 20 (with its smaller batteries  needed replacement batteries after an hour or two necessitating relief by the small Class 8, 0-6-0 Shunter which only has 3 motors. Unfortunately the Class 8 failed, and had to be taken off for repairs. Happily the Class 20’s batteries had been replaced so we were able to keep the service going, albeit with a long queue going halfway down the garden. I am exceedingly grateful for all the efforts everyone put into running the railway and catering yesterday.
