Another Successful Loo Of The Year Awards


Brighton & Hove City Council was thrilled to win the much coveted UK Overall Winners Trophy at the Loo of the Year Awards annual presentation event, held at the end of last year.


Awards Managing Director, Mike Bone, said: “For the third year running a council has deservedly won the top award. Brighton & Hove City Council places significant importance on the provision of a range of public toilets that meet the needs of all types of users including Changing Places Toilets. Although not all new, the toilets are cleaned and maintained to a high standard, and provide much needed facilities throughout the city, vital to residents and visitors.”


Other major UK Trophy Winners included Asda, Ceredigion County Council, City Facilities Management, Danfo UK, GBM Support Services, Harrogate Borough Council, Hastings Borough Council, Highland Council, McDonald’s, TC Facilities Management and J D Wetherspoon.


The 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Richard Chisnell, who created the Loo of the Year Awards in 1987. Richard spent nearly forty years promoting and improving washrooms and washroom services, which included senior positions in national organisations that promoted the development of cleaning and hygiene in washrooms.


The British Toilet Association was also founded by Richard in 1999, and he campaigned for and influenced washroom standards throughout the UK until his retirement as Director of BTA and Managing Director of Loo of the Year Awards in March 2008, when Mike Bone succeeded him.


Richard has taken part in several TV documentaries before and since his retirement, each one raising the profile of washrooms and the important role of cleaning staff. He has also spoken at golbal conferences about his obsession with loos, and even contributed to a World Land Speed Record.


Over 340 guests, including representatives from City Facilities Management, GBM Support Services, Mitie, Specialist Hygiene Services, TC Facilities Management and Wetton Cleaning attended the special Awards Presentation Event at the four star St Johns Hotel Solihull. Entertainment was provided by the excellent Bobby Davro as the after lunch cabaret.
