The 'Loo of the Year Awards' - a recognised national standard for public conveniencnes - saw toilets at Howard Park Gardens in Letchworth, Fish Hill in Royston and The Arcade in Hitchin receive platinum certificates for the high standard of maintenance and cleanliness.

Regular maintenance of the toilets is carried out by Swedish Company 'Danfo' which works collaboratively with NHDC to keep the lavatories in good working order.

NHDC's Service Director for place Vaughan Watson said: "We are delighted to have won these awards. They are an important part of the visitor experience to our towns and we work very hard to make sure they are a pleasant experience for all who visit. Our thanks go out to Ndudi Umeh who works tirelessly to keep them spotless and pristine."
