HINCKLEY & BOSWORTH OFFICERS 'FLUSHED WITH SUCCESS' AFTER LOO AWARDS

Hinckley & Bosworth BC's Station Road toilets have again been recognised as one of the top local authority loos in the country, by winning another two awards in this year's 'Loo of the Year Awards' competition.

This year, the toilets have won a prestigious '5-Star Award', the highest category, for their overall cleanliness and high levels of hygiene. In addition, this year, the team of attendants who look after the toilets have also been rewarded with an 'Attendant of the Year Award' for their high level of commitment in maintaining the high standards at the toilets.

This year's success in the Awards competition maintains the high standards achieved in previous years and Station Road toilets have now won awards in every 'Loo of the Year' competition since they were opened in March 1995.

The 'Loo of the Year Awards' is recognised as the standard setter for public toilet management. At the outset of each year's competition, local authorities, private companies and other bodies responsible for providing or managing loos, together with members of the public, are able to nominate public loos for the competition.

Every year, some 1000 individual toilets are nominated for entry in the popular Awards which, this year, were sponsored by washroom hygiene specialists Cannon Hygiene, together with the English, Northern Irish, Scottish and Welsh Tourist Boards. All loos that take part in the competition are subjected to a random and anonymous inspection by the judges. The judges are not simply looking for loos that look good; they are also seeking evidence that the toilets are well looked after.

When told of the latest awards, council officers were said to be 'flushed with success'. The high standards at Station Road toilets have consistently been recognised by the Award judges, showing that their early competition successes were no 'flash in the pan' and proving that the toilets were far more than just a 'bog standard' facility.

Station Road toilets are open between 7.00am and 7.00pm from Monday to Saturday and are attended at all times. Inside, the toilets include facilities for disabled people, large cubicles for parents with young children, and a mother and baby room for baby changing, with screening for feeding. Outside, a separate disabled person toilet is available 24 hours per day, which can be accessed via the National RADAR keyholder scheme.
