Meet The Staff


At Caravan Accessory Shop we have a small, young, enthusiastic and knowledgeable team:


Chris - Managing Director

Chris started the business in 2004 at the age of 21. Having worked on a caravan park for 4 years after leaving school, he spotted the need for a caravan accessory shop in his village and, due to a serial entrepreneur father, had always dreamed of working for himself!

Favourite Product: "I love the Avantgarde Reclining Chair and matching Footrest - they ooze quality!! I am hoping we don't sell them all so that I can have a pair at the end of the season!"

Melissa - Web Sales Manager (currently on maternity leave)

Melissa joined the team in 2010, having worked mainly in the travel industry until that point. Melissa brings excellent organisational skills to the business, ensuring all parcels are despatched quickly and that we can always find important paperwork!

Bruce - Shop Assistant and Web Sales Despatch

Bruce began working for Caravan Accessory Shop in 2009 - originally at our tiny shop in East Runton. He has a wealth of product knowledge which ensures our customers receive the correct product, whether ordered online or purchased in store.

Bruce is an outdoor pursuits enthusiast and was also a Scout leader for many years. He enjoys a challenge - having climbed Kilimanjaro in 2010 and Everest Base Camp in 2012. Bruce says, "I wore my Quatro Walking Boots to climb Everest Base Camp, they were great! My other favourite shoes are my Amazon Lo Walking Shoes, which I wear every day to work."
