Bunny Village History

Bunny & District Gardeners


Bunny is a small village situated in South Nottinghamshire, England. The village has been a place of settlement for many centuries, possibly as far back as Roman times. This website, set-up and maintained by the Bunny Village History Society, has been created to present some of the information that has been collated on the village.

This site contains transcriptions of Bunny's baptisms from 1715 to 1929, marriages from 1556 to 1929, burials from 1715 to 1899, census returns from 1841 to 1911 and all readable Churchyard inscriptions.

Bunny Parish Council information is now available on this site including minutes of meetings, agendas, general notices, list of members and other useful information.



Thursday May 2 will be election day in Bunny if sufficient names are put forward to seek a seat on the local parish council.
The whole parish council as it stands currently will stand down as the nine members end their term of office in April and new councillors will come into office after May 2nd.

If there are insufficient names put forward to make voting necessary, the names submitted will be considered elected. If more than nine names are put forward, an election will be held.
Rushcliffe Borough Council have made the necessary election packs available (for both Borough and Parish Councillors) and completed papers have to be returned to them by 4pm on April 3rd.

You can also get a pack from the Clerk, Mike Elliott at 19 Main Street, Keyworth, Nottingham. NG12 5AA, call 0115 9376506 to advise the time you will pop in.

At the Parkyns' midsummer festival on Sunday 26th June 2011, a quarter peal of Bunny Surprise Minor rang out from the church bells. This method had not been rung for over thirty years in the tower that it was written for many centuries ago. Click here to listen to a sample of the peal (please allow a short time for it to load).
