Shopshire caravan park's awards success

A leading Shropshire touring caravan park was flushed with success when the winners of national awards to encourage the highest standards in ‘away from home’ washrooms were announced.

Ludlow Touring Park, situated near the beautiful Marches market town of Ludlow, collected three accolades in the Loo of the Year Awards 2020.

The high quality park, owned by Shrewsbury-based Morris Leisure, won the Loo of the Year Award for Holiday Parks in England and received a platinum grading. The park’s cleaning staff also won a Washroom Cleaner of the Year Award for “providing a high level of commitment to a vital public service”.

Park managers Paul and Tracy Barrett said they were “absolutely over the moon” when they were informed about the two awards and platinum grading.

“We are so proud to have won the Loo of the Year Award for Holiday Parks in England, particularly in these difficult times,” added Paul. “Keeping the facilities in pristine condition for our customers has been a labour of love and we have been rewarded for our hard work. The awards have lifted everybody.”

Since their introduction in 1987, the Loo of the Year Awards competition has recognised and rewarded the very best washrooms throughout the UK and Ireland. Any type of non-residential ‘away from home’ washroom can be nominated and entered in the awards. All entries receive a grading - bronze, silver, gold, platinum or diamond - following an unannounced visit by an awards inspector. The Washroom Cleaner of the Year Awards relate specifically to the cleaning staff that look after washroom facilities.

Ludlow Touring Park, which has 114 touring pitches, nestles alongside the River Teme and A49 on a 20-acre site near Richards Castle. Opened in 2012, the park is a prestigious affiliated site of The Caravan and Motorhome Club and generates around £2 million a year for Ludlow and the surrounding area by attracting thousands of caravan and motorhome owners.

Morris Leisure has also developed Ludlow Holiday Home Park next to the touring park, with 20 pitches for holiday homes and luxury lodges.
