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

Other matters
  • Enhancing Our Environment



    Saturday 1 st February saw Oliver Sykes and his friend William planting a number of native tree species including wild cherry, rowan, and silver birch, in the William Breach Recreation Ground, making an attractive addition to the existing copse which was planted four years ago. This long term investment in the environment was carried out entirely on the initiative of these two young men and the village residents are very grateful. The two have plans for further tree planting in other locations, land use permitting. Should anyone know of other sites where trees could be planted please let Oliver know.
