I was lucky enough to have been a guest at the Cleaning & Support Services Association's Annual Luncheon at London's newly refurbished Savoy Hotel last week (see our report, below, together with feedback regarding the AGM). While this event and others like it are, effectively, fun social occasions, the opportunities they provide for that all-important networking, are invaluable.
One of the many people I spoke with at the event was Mike Bone, who heads up the British Toilet Association and Loo of the Year Awards. Mike told me that he's looking for some more sponsors for the Awards and I was surprised at how little this costs, for those keen to get their company logo seen all over the world and show support for such a great initiative. If I was running a company involved in washroom hygiene in any way, this is something I'd certainly do! I was surprised to learn that sponsorship packages start at just £1,000.
"Some of the leading FM and cleaning companies enter their clients' loos in the Awards," said Mike. "In 2010 these included Carlisle Cleaning, Dougland, ISS, Mitie, Resource, TC Contractors and Wettons.
"They recognise the Loo of the Year Awards as a proven, cost effective and independent annual assessment of the standard of their toilet provision management and receive proper recognition through our annual grading scheme.
"Good loos are proven to be good for business."
I couldn't agree more!
If you're smart enough not to want to miss out on a great opportunity to sponsor these awards,

Further to my recent leader regarding bin collections and doorstep recycling, here are the first of your comments on the matter, including one from John Austen who clearly isn't looked after by his council in Kent as well as I am in Surrey!
