Andrew Gravells, city and county councillor for Abbey ward, Conservative:
I want to avoid putting back on the four stone I lost in the past two years and spend a bit more time swimming and less sat behind a computer.

David Drew, Stroud's Labour prospective Parliamentary candidate and Stroud district councillor for Farmhill & Paganhill:

Best selling author Katie Fforde, from Rodborough, near Stroud:
