Welcome to the Parish of Holbrook

gallery/gaslight gallery, holbrook - 13 april 2014 (3)


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.

  • Arkwright Village Hall.  Proposal for Refurbished Layout


The proposal can be viewed here on the HAHVCC web page.  Please comment on the proposed layout by 5 March 2018.  Comments to Peter White (email frednjoan@talktalk.net).


  • Adopted Phone Box, Town Street. Defibrillator Project


The Parish Council recently adopted the BT Phone Box on Town Street.

It has been decided to house a Defibrillator in the Phone Box and we are about to start fundraising for the project. If you would be interested in joining in the fundraising activities, or have any ideas, we would love to hear from you.

We have contacted Community Heartbeat Trust to arrange for the materials to re-paint the phone box and have had some very kind offers of help with the restoration project. If you feel you can offer anything to the project please do get in touch.

A minimum of £600 needs to be raised so activities will be launched shortly.

To get involved please contact Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk on 07738076902 or email clerk@holbrookderbyshire.co.uk


  • Gorsey Piece


Thank you to all involved in the Working Party to help clear and cut back some of the overgrown trees and hedges in Gorsey Piece in early November. The next working party will be held on Saturday 3rd February 2018 at 13:00hrs.


  • Parking on Pavements


We have received a number of complaints about the number of cars parking on Pavements making it unsafe for pedestrians. Please avoid parking on the Pavement.


  • Village Hall Project


Work has now begun on the renovation of Arkwright Hall and we are looking forward to having a fantastic new facility.


  • Mellors Lane Playground Inspections

Mr Sims and Mr Lamb have recently resigned as playground inspectors. Both have volunteered their time to do this for many years and the Parish Council would like to thank them for all their help.


  • Holbrook School for Autism

Concerns have been raised to the Parish Council regarding the situation at the School for Autism. Some time ago an application was made to redevelop parking at the site to ease traffic and congestion on Portway. At this time, we have had no further updates. We are trying to find out what the situation is and will be contacting the School Principal. If you have any concerns, please contact the School Principal.
