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 park is about to have some repair and maintenance work carried out by the equipment manufacturer. This has been scheduled for the next available appointment with the company and will take place at the end of March. The Parish Council have begun discussions about the future of the equipment and are going to see what the situation is following the repair work. Long Term we feel that the equipment will require replacing and the park redesigning. We will update you all with the future discussions and plans.
If you are interested in sponsoring a flower bed in the Parish, please get in touch with Hannah Owen, Parish Clerk. Full details on sponsorship will be given. As a sponsor you will be able to have an agreed advertisement plaque, promoting your club, group or business.
The Parish Council were pleased to see John Meggitt at the February Parish Council meeting following recent ill health. We hope John continues to feel much better.
The only news he reported on was that Sheds were being broken into and he reminded people to make sure Sheds and Outbuildings are locked and secured.
A number of nesting boxes have now been placed around the Parish. These have all been numbered and indeed named! The Green Team co-ordinator, Julie Marshall has been discussing with Derbyshire Wildlife Trust the possibility of a village survey which they have agreed to. Julie is also trying to organise an Owl box for the Parish.
The PC are thrilled that the Hall refurbishment continues to progress. Heating has now been installed to the main hall and further work has continued. By the time I write April News, the sliding doors should be in place between the main hall and the south room.
