Loo of the Year Awards welcomes increased public toilet entries
The 2015 Loo of the Year Awards inspections and grading has now been completed and despite the overall decline in public toilets throughout the UK, public toilet entries in the 2015 Loo of the Year awards increased by 28% compared to 2014, reports Awards managing director Mike Bone.
"The evidence from our inspection visits is that although new public toilets are rare, our local authority entrants are cleaning and maintaining their loos to high standards with some important renovations also being completed.
In addition to high levels of shopping centre entries, Loo of the Year Awards also inspected an increased number of holiday parks throughout the UK. All entrants recognise the value of gaining prestige and recognition of their brand, and importantly their employees' efforts, as a result of achieving awards. Entrants also use the Awards grading to benchmark their toilet provision performance against competitors and can use the awards success as a real benefit when in negotiations with customers and prospects.
"Every entry was inspected and graded by our team of trained and experienced inspectors against established criteria for each and every type of toilet," continues Mike.
"High standards of cleaning and maintenance performed by in-house cleaners, cleaning contractors and facilities management companies were evidenced during our inspection visits.
"The improvements in design and the quality of fixtures and fittings are also recognising users' needs for attractive as well as functional facilities to meet all of their personal requirements. Hygienic services that minimise the risk of infection transfer whilst also saving energy continue to become more prevalent."
Entrants are in the process of being advised of the Loo of the Year Award they achieved and National and UK Awards will be presented at the daytime Presentation Event on Friday 4th December at the elegant four star St Johns Hotel in Solihull. In addition to presentation of the Awards, there will be a sparkling wine reception, four course lunch with wine, supplier exhibition, entertainment by one of Britain's best known comedians - Jim Davidson - and excellent networking opportunities.
