Staff are celebrating their place on the loo roll of honour after impressing inspectors during an unannounced visit.

The Wallace Hartley, in Church Street, Colne, has been left flushed with success after bagging the platinum star rating in the Loo of the Year Awards 2014.

The awards are aimed at highlighting and improving standards of ‘away from home’ toilet provision.

Hundreds of toilets across the UK are judged against numerous criteria, including décor and maintenance, cleanliness, accessibility, hand washing and drying equipment and overall management.

Manager of the Wetherspoon pub Liam Gregg said: “I am delighted with the award. Staff at the pub work hard to ensure the toilets are in first-class condition at all times and it is great that this has been recognised by the inspectors.”

And the Loo of the Year awards 2014 managing director, Mike Bone, added: “The toilets at The Wallace Hartley have been designed and fitted out to a very high standard and are both clean and well maintained.

“The pub richly deserves its platinum award - the highest individual award the judges can deliver.”
