Paul Marshall, of Cafa, said: “We decided that we would dedicate the beach clean to the memory of Jo Cox, the MP 
who was murdered just a year ago.

“Jo embodied the community spirit that we try to encourage in Cafa and her death was a tragedy.

“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.

“Thanks also go to volunteers from the Storehouse church, the Spar in Winthorpe and individuals who helped us.”

Jo embodied the community spirit that we try to encourage in Cafa and her death was a tragedy.
