Winners sit on the Loo of the Year throne

Wychavon District Council sits on throne as Loo of the Year Awards winners

Wychavon District Council has been awarded the coveted Overall Loo of the Year Awards Trophy in the 2020 Loo of the Year Awards.

A regular annual entrant, the Council achieved 10 Platinum and one Diamond award (the only local authority to achieve the ultimate Diamond grade) and were the first Local Authority to become the Overall Loo of the Year Awards winner since 2014. They were also awarded the Space to Change Toilet UK Trophy in a total of nine prestigious UK and National Awards for England.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions on events, the planned annual Loo of the Year Awards Event which was due to take place on 4 December was cancelled, but the awards were presented to the Council in a ceremony at its council office.

Awards Managing Director, Mike Bone, commented: “Wychavon DC has entered Loo of the Year Awards for several years and won many National and UK awards. They are proud of their public toilets which include male, female, baby change, accessible and multiple Changing Places/Space to Change facilities, but are not complacent and have further enhancements planned for 2021.

“Their high standards of washroom provision, cleaning and maintenance have been recognised with the ultimate accolade – the Overall Loo of the Year Awards Trophy.”

In the 2020 Washroom Cleaner of the Year Awards, Axis Cleaning and Support Services were awarded the 2020 UK External Contractor Cleaning Team Trophy and Amenca, an Axis cleaner at the Ashley Shopping Centre Epsom, was awarded the Individual Washroom Cleaner of the Year Awards Trophy. JD Wetherspoon were presented with the In-House Cleaning Team Trophy.
