so there is no lauderette in lewes when at some point i think we could of or will need use of one, some people cant afford a washing machine straight away, there are people in temporary housing that have no area for washing machines and that have no support around them and people on benefits waiting for help to fund a machine for there household takes a good few months to recieve and the nearest one is a bus journy to ringmer... With children thats very hard and overall more expensive! There are also elderly people who could really do with that extra support... And kid me not there are a good few middle class families in lewes that could do with a lauderette to.. I have had convosations with alot of people from lewes on this matter and if someone was to open one it would be used to its advantage... I really dont understand why there isnt one..

Because some people can't see such an obviously brilliant business opportunity and just moan about the lack of such a business, I suppose.

There used to be one on DeMontfort Rd but it closed down, strangely enough, because it wasn't used much & there're plenty of poor housing areas nearby there

The demontfort one closed down 15 years ago and it wasn't very big either.I have always thought Lewes needs launderette,we can't assume that everyone has a washing machine or access to a machine.

The place in Ringmer does good business I`m told. The one in the Cliffe always seemed busy but the machines were always breaking down. Like to see a laundrette open in Lewes.

Why no laundrette? Because it's the 21st century.
The only place in modern Britain with a launderette is Eastenders, where despite all the characters affording to live in half million pound houses (while working on a market stall) none have washing machines.

i would have to correct you there.... Everywhere has laundrettes... That is exactly why im suprised lewes does not have one... Thats a very off comment... Yes it is the 21st century and noones getting richer... And yes handwashing doesnt quite cut it for a familie!! Jesus some people!

The dry cleaners in the Cliffe offer a laundry service, so if it's just that you don't have time (guess this isn't you Grimes), take your washing there. They don't do knickers etc, so you would have to do them by hand!
They are also the only dry cleaners in town who clean on the premises.
Yes I do have a vested (please excuse the pun) interest!

I think they come into their own when your washing machine breaks down and you can't get it fixed for weeks. If Ringmer, Uckfield and Seaford can all provide enough business to keep a launderette going, I don't see why Lewes can't.

By the time you pay for parking in Lewes, you might as well drive (or catch a bus) to Ringmer.
Oh, and BTW Grimes, I handwash for a family.

Beth great idea, ill be very pleased... and so will many other people!!
good for you reckitts, but i dont have time to do that leaning over a bath for hours doesnt do my bad back any favours!!
looking forward to the day one opens!!
a laundrette that you can put your own washing in whatever it may be knickers or whatever and do it yourself... more private and im sure theres the extra cost of someone doing it for you...
oh and maybe dont drive in with the washing then... walk..?? lewes isnt that big and not everyone has a car!!

To my mind, cleaning service is very profitable kind of business. We use cleaning service very often, because our house need it . They work quickly and qualitatively . It is very convenient and actually saves time and family's health.

Just noticed. TP started "Quote of the Moment", although it's hard to understand what it's for. more
QUOTE OF THE MOMENT
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
