Richard Chisnell recognised at Loo of the Year Awards
Richard Chisnell was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Loo of the Year Awards Presentation Event.
Richard has spent nearly 40 years promoting and improving washrooms and washroom services and he has held senior positions in national organisations that promoted the development of cleaning and hygiene in washrooms. He created the Loo of the Year Awards in 1987.
The British Toilet Association was also founded by Richard in 1999 and he campaigned for and influenced washroom standards throughout the UK, until his retirement as Director of BTA and Managing Director of Loo of the Year Awards in March 2008, when Mike Bone succeeded him.
Richard has taken part in several TV documentaries before and since his retirement, each one raising the profile of washrooms and the important role cleaning staff play. He has also spoken at world conferences about his obsession with loos and even contributed to a World Land Speed Record.
When presenting the award, Mike Bone commented: "Richards's record is unprecedented and the Lifetime Achievement Award truly deserved. His legacy is that the Loo of the Year Awards are now universally recognised as the UK standard for away from home loos."
