About Me


I’m Tim Holyoake, and I’m a campaigner for the Liberal Democrats in Oakwood.

I’m 55, was born in Derby, brought up in Borrowash and moved to Oakwood 32 years ago with my wife, Jane. We’ve lived here ever since.

Having raised two daughters here, I’m acutely aware of the need for effective and efficient local services. I pledge to fight for the funding our community needs to thrive.

I’m a Chartered IT Professional and Fellow of the British Computer Society, working for a German software company based on Pride Park. We’ve had our UK headquarters in Derby since 1977.

I’m a committed lifelong learner, motorsport fan and like many of us, nervously wait for The Rams results on a Saturday afternoon (or whenever they’re playing).

I hope to see you as I walk around the ward, and I’m always happy to listen to your concerns.
