Cotswold Loos Clean Up At Annual Toilet Awards
Cotswold District Council has made the roll of honour again this autumn after scooping awards galore at the British Toilet Awards 2009.
The event, held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham on December 4th, saw the Council and its contractor Healthmatic keep its place in the Top Ten – or the Loo of the Year Premier League – of the best local authority toilets in the UK (8th place).
The Council were also awarded the ‘Champions League Standard of Excellence Award’ at the event, sponsored by the British Toilet Association, for the quality and cleanliness of the public toilets in the Cotswolds.
This award is given to an organisation that has ten or more entries in the competition or that wins five or more 5-star awards, while consistently offering a high standard of toilet management.
The Council were awarded 5-star ratings for ten of its toilets in the District, and also received the 4-star award for two of its facilities. Another four toilets picked up the 3-star certificate.
Cotswold District Council’s Cllr Mark Tufnell, the Lead Cabinet Member for Environment and Communities, said: "I am delighted that once again, the high standard of our loos across the District has been recognised and pleased that our contractor, Healthmatic, has secured an overall award.
"It reflects the commitment shown by the Council towards the provision of high quality public conveniences."
The Council’s contractor Healthmatic also picked up an overall award, the ‘External Contractor Cleaning Team of 2009’.
