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
