Stephen Bates campaigning in Parklands Newcastle North

Stephen Bates, Conservative Westminster candidate for Newcastle North enjoyed a great day out campaigning in Brunton Park, Melton Park and Great Park. Stephen Bates was out supporting Newcastle City Council candidate for the Parklands ward, Karen Jewers. Stephen Bates said "it was really good to meet local residents today and hear about the community activities across Parklands. It was also great to talk with local businesses. Whilst some valid concerns were raised about parking and recycling, it was great to hear increasing optimism being expressed about the local economy" #ivotebates
