Tcham N'Toya turned somersaults of joy after his first league goal of the season sealed victory for Notts County.
The striker's 41st-minute goal consigned struggling Bury to their 16th match without a victory.
French midfielder William Mocquet went closest for Bury on his debut with a 30-yard drive which was brilliantly tipped away by Kevin Pilkington.
Pilkington rescued County again with a brave stop at Darren Kempson's defeat as County secured a first win in eight.
