John FletcherOperations Manager
John was the very first employee of James Fletcher Marquees in 1983. He specialises in show marquees, two of his largest annual events are the Border Union Championship Dog Show and Northumberland County Show. Because he has been team leader at these events for many years, the organisers can confidently leave him to complete the contract on time from the marking out stage to the handover. When not erecting marquees, he is usually spending time inside them, as his other full time passion is a championship show rabbit breeder and judge. John’s two sons also work for the company.
