With enormous sadness, the trustees of COASP wish to inform you of the death of our Chair, Jane Leo, on 6th June 2022. As our chair, Jane inspired us all with her leadership. No-one could fail to be impressed by the effortless creativity she brought to problem-solving or touched by the generosity with which she treated everyone: She was creative, clever, kind and funny.

Jane was deeply committed to the service of the community and ensured that serving that community was at the centre of all decision making. The “Inclusive swim” was introduced on her initiative to serve those who might otherwise have been overlooked.

We will all miss her enormously but will take comfort in happy memories and, we have no doubt, will often be moved in trustee’s meetings to ask ourselves, “What would Jane do?” In this way, we will maintain and continue to build on her legacy.
