Beeston & Holbeck ward hustings 2023

Last night (27 April 2023) South Leeds Life hosted an online hustings meeting as part of our local elections coverage.

All the candidates standing in the ward were invited to attend and take questions from our readers. Subjects covered included: what issues they were most concerned about and how being elected would help them address those issues, how they would represent all section of the community, where they live and more.
