Flushed with success

16 January 2017

CHORLEY Council is flushed with success after scooping three national awards for its public toilets.

The council received a top accolade of a Platinum Award for the toilets at the Covered Market in the annual Loo of the Year Awards; was also a Category Winner for the Best Market Toilets, and received an Attendant of the Year Award for the staff who keep the toilets to such a high standard.

The toilets, on Cleveland Street, won the awards following an unannounced check by a fully trained and authorised Loo of the Year Awards inspector.

Councillor Danny Gee, who is responsible for the town centre, said: “We are quite rightly very proud of our public toilets at the market, our staff keep them spick and span. These awards show that their hard work has also been recognised nationally.

“We are delighted to have won a top platinum award this year bettering last year’s gold award, and to also be a category winner as well as winning attendant of the year, is a real feather in our cap.

“We often get appreciative comments from the local people who use them about how well they are looked after by our staff, now we’ve got national awards to prove they are the best!”

The aim of the awards, supported by Visit England, is to encourage the highest possible standards in all ‘away from home’ washrooms and the public toilets are judged against strict criteria by the independent inspectors.
