BOSSES of Barton Grange Garden centre are flushed with success after winning first prize in an international garden centre toilet award.

After reading that the US garden centre contest was open to overseas entries, managing director Guy Topping decided to go in for the ‘American Garden Centres’ best bathroom of the year’ award.

Knowing he had nothing to “loos” Mr Guy sent photos of the Brock centre’s toilets, where the gents includes flower shaped urinals!

Mr Topping said: “We noticed it was an international competition and not restricted just to American garden centres so we decided to enter - and we’re very pleased we did!”

The legendary flower shaped urinals set tongues wagging when the garden centre first opened a few years ago.

Judges were so impressed with the whole ‘bathroom’ facility at Barton Grange that they awarded the them first prize.

The award was announced at the Garden Centers of America annual meeting in Chicago.

The trophy, a 15” tall glass sculpture, is being shipped over to Barton Grange, to take pride of place in the centre.
