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.

Usually we complete our footpath walk by all gathering at the hall and being issued with a footpath to visit all on the same evening. This year we are having to do things slightly differently, although we are planning to do the walks on the same day. If you are interested in completing a footpath walk, please contact Hannah Owen who will send you a form and information on the footpath to walk. The footpath walks are planned for Wednesday 8th July 2020.
Although this is currently on hold, we are putting plans in place to begin this when we are able to. The PC have been contacted by a number of 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 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, please contact Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk on 07738076902 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
As soon as we can we will be up and running with our Cinema events. If there is anything you’d like to see shown at the hall, contact Hannah Owen and put forward your suggestion.
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.
