The Parish of Holbrook lies about 7 miles north of Derby and includes the part of Coxbench that lies west of the Bottle Brook.
Holbrook is at the heart of the Parish. It has many of the advantages of a traditional English village: a vibrant and diverse community life with churches, pubs, sports clubs, village hall, schools, garage, shop and a Post Office.

The Parish Council continues to seek answers and actions for the noise issues on the A38 at Coxbench. The Clerk has been in contact with Nigel Mills MP who is seeking assistance from Highways England to address the problems.
We would encourage as many people as possible to contact Nigel Mills and raise their concerns. The more people who raise concerns the better chance of action we have.
The various ways you can contact Nigel Mills are given on his website which can be viewed by clicking here.
We are thrilled to have received a grant from Community Heartbeat Trust. We are awaiting confirmation of the full amount we are to receive, however, we are hopeful that with this and the fundraising we have achieved, we may be able to purchase two defibrillators for the Village.
The Hall refurbishment continues to move forward and we are pleased that the sliding doors have now been ordered. We look forward to seeing the rest of the project come together.
The Clerk has received notification that DCC has accepted liability for the fallen Church Wall and will be seeking quotes for the work. We have been advised that the work will take some time to organise. As the wall has been fallen for nearly a year now, we will be encouraging the County Council to proceed as quickly as possible.
Thank you to Cllr Bullas and a team of Parishioners, Councillors and Parish Warden, who have worked hard to relocate the planter to the Hall.
It has been very distressing for all those involved in the original project and we hope that this alternative is satisfactory. We think it looks fantastic and will be a lovely feature for outside the new Hall.
