COULD YOUR TOWN BE NEXT TO GET TOILET TWINNED TOWN STATUS?

Have you visited 20 toilets in the last six months? Do you think you could get their owners to twin, or do some fundraising to twin the toilets on their owners’ behalf?

At the moment, we’ve got a number of villages, towns, cities and islands all dreaming up wild and wacky ways to achieve the Toilet Twinned Community award (see map below).

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 toilets 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.
