The Camping and Caravanning Club has scooped numerous awards at the 2009 Loo of the Year Awards, held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham.

And it was The Club who again stood out, being awarded a variety of national awards. They were:
Family Friendly Facilities Overall Trophy Winner
Individual Category National Award Winner (England)
Family Friendly National Award Winner (England)
Individual Attendant Team National Award Winner (Glencoe Club Site – Scotland)
‘Champions League’ – Standards of Excellence

Sites Director Bob Hill said: “As a Club we are all about raising standards in the provision of clean, hygienic, safe and accessible toilets that are available to our members and non-members alike.
“Our Holiday Site Managers, Assistants and Franchisees work tirelessly to ensure that our campers have a memorable and hassle-free experience when they stay on a Club Site.”
Mike Bone, Managing Director of Loo of the Year Awards, added: “Standards in our entrants’ toilets continue to improve, helping us to achieve the Loo of the Year Awards objective of encouraging the highest possible standards in all types of ‘away from home’ or public toilets.”
The Loo of the Year Awards and associated Attendant of the Year Awards for cleaning staff have been identifying 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.
Every entry received an unannounced visit from an authorised Loo of the Year Awards Inspector and was assessed against over 100 judging criteria including signage and décor, fixtures and fittings and overall standards of cleanliness and management.
Every loo receives a star grading ranging from one to five with the five-star winners being short-listed for one of a number of National Awards.
Of the 21 Camping and Caravanning Club Sites put forward in the Holiday Parks and Camping and Touring Sites category, 18 achieved a five-star grade (86%), two were awarded a four-star rating (10%) whilst just one picked up three stars.
