THE LOO of the Year Awards inspection team have now completed the inspection of thousands of 2017 Loo of the Year Awards, and a Ledbury business has not been caught short.

In fact, the team at Woodside Lodges Country Park, in Falcon Lane, has won a Gold award for its new range of toilet facilities, which have been added to the touring park area.

There are 61 different categories in the national competition, and Woodside came out flushed with success in the hospitality category for camping and caravanning.

The judges visit washrooms throughout the UK and they paid a visit, and perhaps spent a penny, at 836 towns and cities, and 56 London Underground Stations.

The inspection criteria are based on fitness for purpose "from the user’s perspective".
