Brian Hopkinson

Cllr. Mr B. Hopkinson

Callicroft Ward


Brian decided to run as a Councillor in Patchway for several reasons; he spent his formative years of childhood in Patchway, having moved there with his parents in 1950, and grew up there and benefited from the youth club in Coniston Road in the 1960s.


Brian ran a business in Patchway and until very recently continued to live in the Town until Stoke Lodge formed its own Parish. Brian believed that the people of Patchway deserved to have a better Council than it had been used to and joined to help focus Councillors from all political parties to do this. He believes to a great extent that this aim is being carried through with not only a more efficient council but one who now is looking more closely at the importance of youth work.


Brian would like to see the youth club in Coniston Road open every day and evening to help ensure our young people get every opportunity to develop their skills and ambitions. He believes in keeping rates payable down as much as possible whilst ensuring our sports and community facilities are well maintained and expanded where possible to meet the demands and hopes of our parishioners.
