Welcome to the Parish of Holbrook

Arkwright Hall

 

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.

  • Covid-19 Update

 

We strongly advise all residents to keep up to date with advice and guidance from NHS England and the Government and we all need to do our bit.

We do not know when face to face meetings will be possible so the Parish Council are holding their monthly meeting via Zoom.  If you wish to join the meeting please contact Hannah Owen by email

(clerk@holbrookderbyshire.co.uk) to request the log in information.  It is likely that our meetings will be held this way for the rest of 2020.

 

  • Mellors Lane Park

 

The Park was re-opened for Public use on 4th July and we thank everyone who has taken all the suitable precautions to use the park.  Please continue to follow the guidance below:

 

  •          The Coronavirus hasn’t gone away

 

  •          Only 1 adult to accompany each play area user

 

  •          You are using this facility at your own risk

 

  •          Respect other users by retaining 2m social distancing (it's only

                1 metre-plus where 2m isn't possible)

 

  •          Strictly follow the Government’s Covid-secure guidance

 

  •          This is not a controlled environment, which means the virus

                could be transmitted via the play equipment

 

  •          Please carry and use your own anti-bacterial hand sanitiser after

                touching the play equipment

 

  • Flower Bed Sponsorship


We have a number of flower beds that are sponsored in the Parish. Thank you to Steve Varney of Holbrook Travel, Holbrook Friendship Group and Holbrook Green Team for their sponsorship. We will be writing to all our sponsors officially to say thank you. Anyone wishing to sponsor a Flower Bed, please contact Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk.

 

  • Bulging Walls in the Parish

 

The Parish Council are very concerned about the state of many walls in the Parish. At the last meeting it was decided that we would compile a report of all the bulging and damaged walls in the Parish and send the information to Derbyshire County Council.

 

  • Portway

 

We are sorry to advise that the postponing of the roadworks have now themselves been postponed! Confused? We are. As it stands Portway is shortly to close for essential Gas works.

 

  • Community Speed Watch


We are sadly taking one step forward and two steps back with this. Due to the changes in gatherings the training for Community Speedwatch is a little tricky to organise but we are working on it and will get the ball rolling as soon as we can. We have had some volunteers come forward and have been moving the project forward but there is always a welcome for others to join us so, if you would like to take part or would like to raise concerns regarding a particular area where speed is an issue, please contact Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk on 07738076902 or email clerk@holbrookderbyshire.co.uk

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Parish Council continues to ask local authorities to look into the issues in our Parish. Sometimes it is a numbers game. The more concerns raised about an issue, the higher priority the issue is given. Below is a reminder on how to contact the County and District Councils.
