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 flooring restoration has now been completed and we are in the final stages with a few little bits to be finished before we can say at last our wonderful hall is now completed.
We are continuing to meet with contractors and discuss new playground equipment and will continue to update the Village.
The Clerk recently contacted Notts and Derby Bus Manager Stuart Frost to question rumours of cuts in the Number 71 Bus service. Stuart responded very promptly and confirmed they have no intention of cutting or changing the service.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have enjoyed our second screening at Holbrook Community Cinema. 'Yesterday' was shown on Saturday 16th November and we were delighted so many people were able to attend.
Our next film is 'Nativity!', a funny, family Christmas movie which we are showing at 10.30am on Saturday 21st December at the Hall. Tickets will go on sale shortly at the shop and a small present for each child will be given out after the film. Please note all children must remain accompanied by an adult throughout the film. You can see the trailer of the film here.
We are looking for people to let us know what films they would enjoy watching. We hope to show another film in January. If you have any suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact Hannah Owen on on 07738076902 or email email@example.com.
We are pleased to announce the casual vacancy has now been filled and we welcome Tessa Paul onto the Parish Council.
