Councillor Katja Hornchen:
Katja was elected as councillor for Brislington East in 2021. She is a working mum of a child with additional needs, and knows the importance of local services such as transport, local shops and community spaces. Katja is currently a secondary school teacher and has worked with communities for the past 20 years, mostly with families, children and young people.
Katja has been working to improve the look and quality of the shops on Brislington Hill, an area which has now received council funding, thanks to local Labour’s efforts. She is passionate about green spaces and has enjoyed helping with the work groups at Eastwood Farm.

Tim was elected in January 2020 at a by-election, promising to work to deliver on a station for St Anne’s, improved public transport, more community infrastructure and better parks and green spaces.
Since then he has successfully bid for money to carry out a feasibility study for the station, has persuaded the council to put a community space into St Anne’s House, helped to win extra council funding for the new playpark at Eastwood Farm and started work with WECA on a re-design of local bus services.
