Seasalter: Colin Spooner

I own Pilgrims Lane Kennels and Cattery in Seasalter and have lived and worked here for eight years with my wife Julie. We have three grown-up daughters and four grandchildren. 

I joined the City of London police force in 1974 and later transferred to the Metropolitan Police where I served for many years in various roles. I ended my career as a dog handler in the south-east London area.

After leaving the police force, I ran my own security company for 10 years. I am also a Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme examiner and work with local dog training clubs. You may also find me exercising and training my pet working cocker spaniel Mocha on the beach at Seasalter.

Tankerton: Neil Baker

I have represented Tankerton since 2011 having previously taken a keen interest in the role the local authority plays in the area, wider town and district for some time, be it working as a local journalist, playing an active part in local groups or just as someone who is interested through having had ancestors in the town since at least 1725.
