Knowle candidates 2016


With elections for the council coming on 5th May, meet your Labour candidates in Knowle….

Carolyn Magson - has a background of working in specialist youth and children’s broadcasting and is particularly passionate about ensuring that young people have as many opportunities as possible. She has lived in South Bristol for the past seven years.

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. Many residents are rightly concerned about gaps in the bus service in Knowle, especially connecting Knowle West with the South Bristol Community Hospital.

Labour is committed to reviewing gaps in the service and further improving services like the number 90.

Together with the support of a Labour Mayor in Marvin Rees we can work with communities to build the bus network people need.

You can email Tom at and Carolyn at
