John Culine MBE
A local legend, previous Mayor of Spennymoor, Councillor and Chairman of the Showmans Guild for many years John has been with the Gala Committee for over 40 years and is currently our serving Chairman.
With an unapologetic, passionate love of Spennymoor John can tell stories and produce historic photos with a worrying ease, a wealth of knowledge and a memory for detail makes for many an entertaining conversation (just make sure you put plenty of time aside!).
Organising the 4 day Fairground that runs alongside the Gala, he is an invaluable member of our team.
John was born in Jubilee Park although he doesnt like to speak about it....
