British Cleaning Council: an update
The offices of cleaning equipment supplier Denis Rawlins was the venue for the British Cleaning Council's Winter meeting, courtesy of the company's managing director James White.
It was the first full BCC meeting since changes were made to the secretariat and there were several items on the agenda - not least of which was the running of the secretariat. It was agreed that Pat Wherton (pictured), who has looked after the Association of Building Cleaning Direct Service Providers for several years, should continue to oversee the BCC's secretariat services for the next 12 months.
The Council has been concerned about the lack of grant applications over the past 12 months, and with the Cleaning Show set to provide further funds to help fledgling projects, it was agreed that the board would explore the possibility of changing the grant structure to encourage participants.
The Council heard that the Dexter House conference in London before Christmas was a huge success, with a post conference survey showing delegates were either 'satisfied' or 'very satisfied' when asked what they thought about the event.
There was also a presentation by Bio-medical Scientist, Dr Amy Gyte, who is looking at the proposed link between cleaning chemicals and asthma.
The BCC's next meeting will be held at Somerset House in London on April 22nd 2015, and will be hosted by Anthony Tyrell of the British Association for Cleaning in Higher Education.
