Staff and management at Dalton Park Outlet Shopping Destination are feeling flushed with success after scooping two accolades in the Loo of the Year Awards for the 18th year in a row.
The facilities at the centre retained Eco Loo status for the second year and, for the first time, they were awarded Platinum Plus after previously achieving Platinum.
Each entry is assessed against 100 different elements judging including signage and décor, fixtures and fittings and overall standards of cleanliness and management.
Dalton Park’s toilet facilities were praised following an independent, unannounced visit from judges late last year.
Cleaning Supervisor Laura Metcalfe and team member Angela Maitland have been ensuring the toilets are in tip top condition for a combined 16 years and both are delighted with the announcement.
Laura said: “We’re proud of our work here at Dalton Park and we always look forward to hearing the Loo of the Year results.
“It is fantastic that we have retained our Eco Loo status as we take sustainability and our environmental commitments very seriously.
“To achieve Platinum Plus status for the first time is absolutely wonderful, next year we’re going for Diamond!”
Richard Kaye, Centre Manager at Dalton Park, said: “Our entire team is dedicated to making every aspect of Dalton Park the best it can be and these awards are proof that we are getting it right!
“Having long serving staff members that are really invested in our shared visions and values is key to success and I would like to thank Laura, Angela and everyone else in the team for their ongoing hard work and dedication.
“The awards, which have been identifying the best out of home toilet and washroom facilities in Britain since 1987, are always a great start to the year.”
