The launderette, in Oulton Rise, Parklands welcomed the mayor of Northampton councillor Tony Ansell for a ribbon cutting ceremony on Sunday (September 2) to declare the store open.

An afternoon of good, old fashioned fun was had by all, with live 50’s music from The Candy Girls, tasty treats while exploring the world of bubbles.

The mayor councillor Tony Ansell said: “It’s a pleasure to help open Bubbles Laundromat’s new store which offers a refreshing cheerful and vibrant environment. This community-spirited business is a great addition to the towns services.”
