A CLACTON laundrette is going through some big changes in hopes of keeping its "relaxed and homely feel". 

Laundry Central, in Carnarvon Road, provides specialist dry cleaning services, self-service washing machines and ironing services. 

The shop, which opened four years ago, is set to be refurbished with new posters, internal signage and a coat of paint.

Tania Potts, the owner of the business, said: "I’m really excited to bring a brighter and fresher feel to the shop. I get so much feedback from customers saying that they come to my laundrette because it's so clean, modern and tidy and has a relaxed and homely feel.

"Maintaining that feeling is really important to me as it's what my customers value. Having been open for four years now I started to feel like it could do with a freshen-up."

The work is currently underway and should be finished by February 5.

Tania added: "I will also be bringing back the free tea and coffee during attended hours which I had to stop during Covid.
