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

William Breach Playing Field Communication.

Protecting the future of the William Breach Recreation Ground  
The playground equipment in the playing field is over ten years old.  It all requires maintenance to meet safety standards and some of the equipment no longer complies, therefore requires repair, removal or replacement.  Any initiative to enhance the facilities within the playing field will come at a cost that will probably result in the increase of the precept (the element of the council tax that comes back to the parish). For these reasons it is important that parishioners can express their views and it would be greatly appreciated if you are able to complete the survey below. (FOUR PAGES-Please keep scrolling).

Defibrillator   

The Defibrillator is now up and running and is located outside The Well in Bulkington. Hopefully the defibrillator will never be used but if required, ring 999 and the emergency services will provide you with the code to access the defibrillator (as well as despatching an ambulance). The equipment is user friendly and a video is available to view at https://youtu.be/PHcTvfYu5pg


 

Community Policing Teams Out And About 

Good Morning,


We're responding to your requests to see more Police in your area, by encouraging Police Officers and Police Community Support Officers (PCSO) to take their breaks (yes we all eat and drink) in your areas when they can. Not always easy to achieve, but if you see one in your local cafe and shops please say hello I'm sure they would welcome it.

Where they can they may also be catching up on work and completing investigation work, for current crime reports, but again please stop and chat they can always close their laptops and would probably like a screen break.
