“Joe embodied the community spirit that we try to encourage in Cafa and her death was a tragedy.
“We were happy to have Paul Kenny with us who is standing as MP for Labour in the Skegness and Boston seat.
“We had some very good discussions with the many people enjoying the walk along the sea front and who were very appreciative of our efforts to keep the Sea View walk and beach free of litter.
