We’re a busy and happy crew who all bring different skills and experience together to make Gone Crabbing a great team business.
Having spent years being an employee Susie is determined that, as an employer, she wants everyone involved in the business to feel both their opinion and their actions are valued. We strive to provide the best quality product for our customers and hope that we achieve outstanding customer service. Equally we entrust our staff to be the face of Gone Crabbing and want them to stay with us on our continued journey.
The bottom line is that we want everyone who is involved in the GC brand to be happy - suppliers, staff and customers. Smiles all round basically!
Susie is a Norfolk gal - her love of the seaside as a child and her knowledge of the tourist market led her to create Gone Crabbing. Susie has just moved to an ancient cottage in coastal Cornwall and lives there with her partner Dicki, her two, not so small children - Georgie and Rory - and their four dogs and four ducks. Susie loves watersports and skiing (she believes she may have an allergy to all other forms of exercise!) and enjoys the occasional(!) glass of Prosecco with friends.
Dicki is a relatively new arrival in Norfolk having been born and bred in Stourbridge, West Midlands. Dicki has 20 years’ retail experience and is our Retail Manager and works on the Trade Desk. A keen sportsman - he loves his tennis and has started to compete in triathlons and half marathons. This year he became a Norfolk Superhero and has started to train again for next year’s Norfolk Superhero Challenge. We must not forget also that he is also the very proud father of his two lurchers, Tetley and Mr Pug.
Georgie has just joined us to assist Susie in the day-to-day running of the business but also works both in our shop, on the Trade Desk and helps with product development. Georgie has achieved a 1st Class Honours Degree in Sociology at Newcastle and has just spent the last year working in Australia and for a women’s refuge in India. Georgie is a qualified swimming instructor and is now in training with Dicki for her first triathlon but we find she is easily put off training by inclement weather. She is also the proud owner of Tinkerbell, her beloved Yorkshire Terrier.
Claire is a Norfolk gal too who is the face of our Gone Crabbing shop having had years of retail experience. Her other big love is horses and when she isnt manning the shop she can be found mucking out, riding and taking her two cheeky terriers - Buttons and Dotty - for long rambles along the Norfolk coast ending up in the local hostelry. She loves skiing, swimming and is trying to love running albeit unsuccessfully :-)
