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.
Contact the Clerk if you wish your local group to have a web page and email address on this site.

The Parish Council have been requesting updates on the progress of the Church Wall. We have also asked for the road to be opened as quickly as possible even if traffic lights are required. We have also requested that Portway and Killis Lane are not closed at the same time. We have had confirmation that the roadworks on Killis Lane have now been postponed. We are frustrated with the delay to the work and continue to raise these concerns.
If you are interested in sponsoring a flower bed in the Parish, please get in touch with Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk. Full details on sponsorship will be given. As a sponsor you will be able to have an agreed advertisement plaque, promoting your club, group or business. Thank you to Steve’s Taxis who sponsors the flower bed on Pond Road.
The refurbishment of the Village Hall is fast approaching completion now. The Hall Trustees have confirmed they will be hosting a day of events to celebrate the completion of the work with a barn dance in the evening on Saturday 14th September.
As a Parish Council we receive many concerns about speeding around the Village. At the April Parish Council meeting it was decided we would look to get involved with a Community Speed Watch programme. The Clerk has registered Holbrook to take part in this and we need volunteers to join us. If you would be interested in taking part, please contact Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk on 07738076902 or email email@example.com. If there is an area you think requires attention and is frequently a speeding hot spot, do let us know.
The Annual Parish footpath walk is taking place on Tuesday 16th July 2019 at 7pm. If you are able to join us, please do come along to the hall at 7pm. If you’d like to take part but aren’t available in the evening, we can still give you information and you can take part by completing a selected footpath. Please contact Hannah for more information.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the Fete on Saturday 13th July. Do pop along and say hello and have a look at our upcoming projects.
If you would like to contact the Parish Council please don’t hesitate to do so. You can call the Parish Clerk, Hannah Owen, on 07738076902 or you can email her on: firstname.lastname@example.org
