Tom Cottrell - has lived in Knowle his whole life, and has strong family ties to the area. He campaigns especially for opportunities for young people, adult education/skills, and the environment.
Carolyn and Tom have been speaking to residents in Knowle to understand the issues and concerns they have. One important issue is public transport.
