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.

Thank you to all who took part in the annual footpath walk in July. The walk was very well attended and we are most grateful to all who attended.
We are very pleased to announce we have reached the first target of £600. A huge thank you to all those who have donated. There is still fundraising to be done so if you would like to make a donation, please contact Hannah Owen. You can find more information about our Go Fund Me page by clicking on the link below.
Thank you to Jonathan Bryan who has been fundraising and has offered £250 to the Defibrillator Project. This has given the project the boost to take it to the next stage. A huge thank you to Jonathan.
Also a big thank you to Chris Ottowell who has been helping with the project and has offered to renovate the Phone Box ready for the defibrillator.
To get involved please contact Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk on 07738076902 or email email@example.com
Phase 2 of the project will be starting soon and we continue to see improvements in the Hall. Further updates will follow.
At the July Parish Council meeting it was resolved to send an official thank you letter to Linda for all her years of service providing the Post Office to the Parish. Many members of the Parish have since contacted the Parish Council to advise a public thank you gathering is planned on Wed 15th August. The suggestion is for members of the Parish to meet at 11.30 on the 15th August outside the Post Office. If you are able to attend it would be much appreciated.
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. We have managed to agree a site meeting with all parties and are waiting for confirmation of a date. More updates will follow.
The Clerk has received an update from Kevin Buttery. The wall repair requires investigation work which will mean Portway being closed for a time. Specialist equipment is required and we have been advised that the task may take a while. The Clerk will continue to provide updates and keep asking for information. See link below regarding closure notice for 29 August 2018.
