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.

  • Pot Holes

After a particularly bad winter, the roads in the County are in a poor state with pot holes. It is essential that any pot holes in the Parish are reported to Derbyshire County Council. There is the usual link at the bottom of this page, or follow this link.

  • Mellors Lane Playground

The Clerk has received the annual playground inspection from AVBC and is pleased to report that Mellors Lane Park is considered a low risk playground. In the report the Parish Council has been advised to look at the wooden stumps.  As a piece of equipment it is considered that during wet weather this item of equipment can be slippery. Our playground inspectors are making a visit to the site to determine what the best course of action is for this equipment. It may be that the safest thing to do is remove the stumps. If this is avoidable we will of course try to keep the posts, however safety is the most important thing.

  • Cool Elizabeth Pump - Coxbench

Cllr Roberts and Rhodes, with other members of the Parish, are beginning a restoration project to restore the old “Cool Elizabeth” pump which is located in Coxbench. We look forward to seeing the completed work over the next few months.


  • Fundraising for New Defibrillator for Town Street Adopted Phone Box.

We have just launched our Go Fund Me Page to raise funds for a new defibrillator for the recently adopted Phone Box on Town Street. Please visit our Facebook page or follow the link below if you could help us reach our £600 target.






  • Environmental Issues in Holbrook

We have recently been contacted by Julie Marshall who raised concerns about environmental issues which need addressing. The Parish Council fully understand and share many of the concerns Julie has raised. We are interested in looking at ways we can work towards making changes. The PC are going to invite Julie to hold a gathering for other people who would like to work on environmental issues. We will use our website and Facebook page to help promote ideas and activities and we would like to invite representation to the Parish Council stand at the Village Fete.

At the March Parish Council meeting it was resolved to contact AVBC and request that the bin bags provided could be bio-degradable ones and the Council will discuss further how we can be more environmentally conscious.


  • Autism Centre Planning Update

The Clerk has contacted AVBC and DCC about the recently approved planning permission for new access at Holbrook School for Autism. The department we have been advised to speak to is yet to respond to our request for information, but as soon as we have information we will share this.


  • Village Flag

A big thank you to Julie Marshall who has begun design work for the Village Flag. This idea has been created using ideas and suggestions from Children at Holbrook Primary School. We look forward to sharing the design with you in the near future.


  • Update on the Village Hall Refurbishment

We are delighted to report that refurbishment at the Hall continues to progress well. HAHVCC and HPC have received some really positive feedback and we are pleased to report all is going well.
