Loo of the Year - The Results are in!!



Rustington Parish Council is delighted to have won two Platinum and two Gold Loo of the Year Awards in the 2019 search to find the best "away from home" toilets in the UK. The Rustington entries were in the Public Toilets (Non-Attended) Category.

Mike Bone, Managing Director of Loo of the Year Awards said "Rustington Parish Council has regularly entered the Loo of the Year Competition in recent years and received an independent assessment of the quality of its Public Toilet provision. Although only a small Parish Council, it takes pride in providing clean and well-maintained facilities that meet the needs of residents and visitors to Rustington. The Council deserves the awards that it achieves and is to be congratulated at a time when many Councils consider the provision of Public Toilets as an unnecessary cost."

The Loo of the Year Awards and associated Washroom/Toilet Cleaner of the Year Awards for cleaning staff have been identifying the best toilets/washrooms in Britain since 1987 and are recognised as standard setters for all those who provide "away from home" facilities for staff, customers and visitors.

Every entry received an unannounced visit from a Loo of the Year Awards Inspector and was assessed against 101 judging criteria "including signage and decor, fixtures and fittings and overall standards of cleanliness and management. Every washroom receives a grading ranging from Bronze to Diamond and Gold, Platinum and Diamond winners are short listed for one or more of several National Awards covering England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic. 

The 2019 Loo of the Year Awards were sponsored by Innovative Hygiene Supplies and Bathroom Wipe-Out365 from Signo Nano-Care.

Thousands of toilets were judged this year, across the 61 separate entry categories of the Competition, with many first-time entries from establishments joining the increasing number of providers who submit their washroom facilities for an annual, independent assessment.
