Anne’s Launderette

Anne Tallon, who opened a small launderette business alongside her St. Martin’s Drive home 20 years ago, has decided to step back and move into retirement. She closed the premises for the last time on Tuesday September 22nd. and is now set to enjoy a well deserved retirement. 

Anne and her family provided a great service to the local community and beyond over that twenty year period. She has been the recipient of heartfelt good wishes to herself and her husband Tom for the future.

She will now have more time to dedicate to her crafts, showpiece garden, grandchildren and family. Anne is a talented bowler and, no doubt, she will spend a little more time on the bowling mat. Best wishes to Anne and Tom.
