Visitors to Angus Council toilets are spending a penny in style as the county’s public toilets and attendants are once again recognised as the superstars of the loo world at the Loo of the Year and Attendant of the Year awards.
Attendants were presented with certificates by Communities convener Donald Morrison, who thanked them for their hard work.
He said: “Congratulations to our toilet attendants here today. The success of Angus superloos in these national awards year on year is a reflection of the dedication and hard work of the attendants. We are committed to providing top quality public facilities for the use of local people and visitors and the ratings we receive in these awards reflect this.”
Angus Council was on a roll with the following awards:
Platinum Grade Loo of the Year Awards - Brechin Church Street, Arbroath Harbour Visitor Centre, Montrose Baltic Street, Kirriemuir Reform Street and Forfar The Buttermilk.
Gold award - Arbroath Market Place.
The council were presented as the National Winner Scotland: Public Toilet Entries and a Premier League Local Authority Award.
The Loo of the Year Awards and Attendant of the Year Awards are recognised as standard setters for all those who provide facilities for staff, customers and visitors. Every entry received an unannounced visit from an inspector and was assessed for signage, décor, fixtures, fittings and overall standards of cleanliness and management.
The awards has identified the best in Britain since 1987 and are recognised as standard setters for all those who provide ‘away from home’ facilities for staff, customers and visitors.
1631 entries were received in 2014, across the 60 separate entry categories of the competition, with many first time entries from establishments joining the increasing number of providers who submit their toilet facilities for an annual, independent assessment.
