The Approved Workshop Scheme is an industry-wide benchmark for high quality caravan servicing and maintenance. It's a collaboration between The NCCCaravan Club and The Camping and Caravanning Club and is supported by all major tourer and motorhome manufacturers.

 

 

Britain's best workshops

The AWS winners, sponsored by Truma, were selected as a result of customer satisfaction surveys and an annual assessment by an Independent NCC assessor. 

 

There are two categories; Approved Mobile Workshop of the Year and Approved Workshop of the Year (Fixed Base).

 

The Winner of the Award for Approved Mobile Workshop of the Year was Leisure Tech North East, a business established and run by Lawrence Mortimer. The runner up was BC Caravan Services, run by Brian Chorlton and based in Hampshire.

 

The winner of the Award for Approved Workshop of the Year (Fixed Base) was Tilshead Caravans Ltd in Lopcombe near Salisbury. GW Caravan Services Ltd of Creswell, near Worksop, was named runner up.

 

John Hartley,  AWS Manager says; “The awards, represent a fantastic achievement by all workshops, but highlight those that have managed to attain incredibly high scores in the requisite areas. Congratulations go out to all our worthy winners, it proves the personal touch works every time”.
