Lockleaze

Lockleaze is a 2 member ward in Bristol North West Parliamentary Constituency. The last election in Lockleaze was in May 2016 where the candidates were Leslie Cooper and Rebecca Hutcheon. The Liberal Democrats received 9.62% of the vote and we want to increase this in the next election. The next election will be in May 2021.
