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.

We have had a positive start to fundraising for the new Defibrillator. The Clerk is to ask local businesses if they would contribute towards the purchase. Fundraising will also continue at the Village Fete. If you would like to make a donation, please visit out Go Fund Me Page. A link is on our Facebook page and the website (please click on the box below).
Work continues at the Hall, with refurbishment continuing. Work has also been taking place outside, plus the new sheds have arrived and are in position.
The roof work is ongoing and then the porches will be completed. The doors are being made and will be added shortly.
We have received some positive feedback regarding the Hall and we will be displaying photographs of the Progress at the Village Fete.
Julie Marshall has displayed some posters regarding how Holbrook can become more environmentally friendly (see below - you can dowload a poster by clicking on the picture).
A group is to be formed to look at how environmental issues can be addressed. If you would be interested in taking part, contact Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk or Julie Marshall directly.
The Parish Council has been trying to get an update on what the situation is with the traffic and parking at the Autism Centre. A planning application had been approved to improve the traffic flow at the Centre back in October 2017, but no work has begun. The Council will continue to try and find out what the plans are and what is happening and will keep reporting what we find out.
If you would like to contact the Parish Council please call Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk on 07738076902 or you can email her on: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Village Fete will be held on Saturday
