The Voice of Holbrook

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, cafe, 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 final stage of the renovation work is now underway with the flooring work in progress. The Derbyshire Association of local Councils have written to Holbrook Parish Council to congratulate the PC on the Hall and pay a special tribute to all the hard work of Cllr Mrs Glenys Briggs in her role as Clerk and Cllr Richard Massey for all his hard work on the project.
Following on from a concern raised at the October HPC Meeting about cuts to the 71 bus service, the Clerk has received a response from the management of Notts & Derby Buses stating that "We have no intention of cutting or changing the service".
We are continuing to meet with contractors and discuss new playground equipment and will continue to update the Village.
The Parish Council have continued discussions with Derbyshire Police regarding Speeding in the Parish. The PC are seeking volunteers to take part in Community Speed Watch. It is a very simple project which will help to cut speeding around the Parish. It only takes around 1 hour to complete the training. We have had some volunteers come forward and will be moving the project forward but there is always a welcome for others to join us so If you would like to take part, please contact Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk on 07738076902 or email email@example.com
Tickets are now on sale for the next screening. Tickets are £3.50 from the shop or £4.50 on the door. Saturday 16th November 2019 is the date of the next event and we will be showing the film Yesterday.
