Cleaning staff at Lancaster’s Market Gate Shopping Centre have been awarded in this year’s Loo of the Year awards.

The facilities, which were upgraded in 2009, have achieved Platinum status in the awards, while staff bagged the Attendant of the Year 2014.

The toilets include junior priority toilets in both the ladies and gents and some cubicles are fitted with support rails. The parent room was found to provide a brightly lit, attractive area with baby changing facilities while also offering a unisex toilet and separate breast-feeding room.

Lynn Ison, Shopping Centre Manager said: “We are thrilled with both of these prestigious awards, which are a credit to the cleaning team who maintain the facilities to such a high standard.”
