Across the UK, communities are dreaming up wild and wacky ways to involve schools, businesses, politicians, restaurants, supermarkets and so on, to achieve the accolade of Toilet Twinned Town.
In Skelmersdale, the town's exploits went under the banner of Guerrilla Twinning – where members of St Paul's Church led the way by voting with poo-shaped stickers for a shortlist of twinning recipients. This resulted in them becoming the first-ever Toilet Twinned Town in 2015.
Ask us today for details of the specific criteria for Toilet Twinned Village, Toilet Twinned Town or Toilet Twinned City - and then have a think about how you could spread the word across your community.
We'd recommend that you set up a ‘steering group’ – to chivvy and inspire everyone towards the goal. It helps to identify ambassadors who could contact particular groups (eg businesses, schools etc).
Once you reach your goal, you’ll receive a special certificate in recognition of your achievement.
The goals are:
1) To get your local council or MP involved
2) To twin a number of twins across different categories:
• Public toilets or toilets made available to the public through the Community Toilet Scheme
• Cafés, pubs or restaurants
• Local businesses
• Community organisations
• Churches or other faith communities
• Schools or other educational establishments
3) To make sure your community’s twinning efforts go beyond your steering group – so that you can demonstrate that the idea of Toilet Twinning has captured people’s imaginations.
4) To achieve media coverage for your efforts – or provide evidence of attempts to do so.
