The pub won best independent category in The Sudocrem Care & Protect Baby Changing Room Awards after parents nominated their top places.

The Pointer won the award for its clean and spacious facilities, which offer a comfortable changing mat in a calm environment, disposable towels and plenty of room to move around and stow a pram.

Now in its third year, Sudocrem Care & Protect launched its Awards in 2014 to recognise the very best in baby changing facilities across the UK. The first campaign prompted almost 1,000 parents to nominate their favourite baby changing rooms.

“It’s often simple things like good baby changing facilities that make life better for parents in the First 1,000 Days”, says Nick Wilkie, father-of-three and CEO of the National Children’s Trust. “That’s why the Baby Changing Room Awards are such a great idea and why the NCT is so pleased to be involved.”

James Rodgers, pub manager at The Pointer, said: “We’re thrilled to have won baby changing room of the year voted by our customers. We have a great mix of regulars and first time visitors, so it’s great to hear we’ve been able to provide an hospitable and convenient environment for families enjoying a day out.”

Sudocrem Care & Protect is a unique nappy rash ointment and changing bag essential. It provides triple protection against nappy rash at every nappy change and comes with a hinged flip-top lid, which gives quick mess-free access to the ointment using one hand; a must when nappy changing requires speed and efficiency.

“This has been yet another wonderful opportunity to highlight fantastic baby changing facilities and remind everyone of the difference that good nappy changing facilities make to mum’s lives. We hope it will encourage businesses everywhere to provide excellent facilities.” Says Senior Brand Manager Nick Lang.

The winners will receive their unique certificates with the Sudocrem Care & Protect logo this month. All voters were automatically entered in a prize draw for a family holiday at Knoll House in Dorset and this year’s winner has been contacted.
