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.

  • Parking on Pavements

We have continued to receive a complaints and concerns about the number of cars parking on Pavements making it unsafe for pedestrians. We highlighted the issue in the last Village Magazine and since then we have been made aware of parking problems on grass verges which is causing damage to the grass. Please avoid parking on the Verges and on pavements. Please ensure pedestrian access at all times.


  • Parking by Village Shop

The bus company operating services through Holbrook has advised that parking on the corners by the Village Shop has led to the bus being unable to pass. This has also meant that stops are being missed from the route as the bus can’t get through. Please don’t park on the corner, there are white lines in place to show where the area must be kept clear. It is against the Highway Code to park on the junction. Please adhere to the Highway Code so the area remains safe.


  • Village Hall Project

A progress report will be displayed at the Village Fete. We are very pleased with the feedback to date. Phase 2 of the project will soon be underway and we are very excited to see the end result.


  • Dog Mess Bin

The Clerk has been liaising with AVBC about new bins for the Parish. Whilst AVBC have offered a free extra bin for Shaw Lane, they would charge an annual fee of £712.68p to empty the one bin. That is a large percentage of our budget and is not affordable. AVBC also advised the fee would increase annually. We had hoped to be able to negotiate a new bin, but this has not been possible.


  • Holbrook School for Autism

We are continuing to try and have confirmation of the plans for the redevelopment for the entry and exit at the autism school and the general traffic issues. When we have any information we will report on the matter.


  • Village Flag

Last year we ran a competition to design a village flag. The children in the Parish came up with so many good ideas it was impossible to choose just one. We have sent the flags to Julie Marshall who has kindly taken ideas from the flags and created a Holbrook Parish Flag. We are having a number of flags produced and we are sure you will like the final design. Thank you to all the children involved and well done for your creativity.


  • Holbrook Garden Group

A new web page has been produced for the Holbrook Garden Group.  View it here.
