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 May meeting has to take place within 14 days of an election. This has meant we have had to bring forward the date of the May meeting 2019. The Parish Council meeting will follow the Annual Parish Meeting and the AGM of the Parish Council on Wednesday 15th May 2019. The meetings will start at 7:15pm.
The Parish Council has been liaising with Nigel Mills MP regarding concerns about the lack of noise proofing being carried out at the A38 at Coxbench. A meeting was arranged on site to discuss this matter with Nigel Mills. An Action Group has been formed and if you are interested in being part of the group please contact Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk on 07738076902 or email email@example.com
Nigel Mills will be holding a surgery at Holbrook on 17th May 2019. These surgeries are held periodically as an opportunity to meet with Nigel to discuss any matter you wish, however an appointment must be made. To make an appointment contact Nigel Mills’ office on 01773 744 341.

The new doors are in place at the hall. We had some very positive feedback from those recently visiting the hall during the election. The refurbishment work will soon be completed and we look forward to seeing the completed hall.
Thank you to all who donated to the project, work has begun on the restoration of the phone box and we are awaiting the arrival of the new Defibrillator.

Details of the proposed work can be found in this document. It states that the rebuild work will start on Monday 13th May and will be completed by 28 June 2019. The road will be closed throughout this time. BT has been contracted to undertake work on the overhead cable and permanently divert it through a duct underneath the highway.
During the road closure, the 7.1 bus will bypass Portway and enter and exit the Village via Killis Lane. Town Street and Church Street stops will not be served.
