Galleries, Gardening & Wildlife
Posted by Boundary Community Launderette on 19/01/2012
We’ve had a week of ups and downs at the launderette, so we’ve not had too much time to find out what free things there are in the area this weekend but we’ve found a few things that we hope you’ll find interesting. As ever, we think you should make the most of your free time by having your laundry service washed. Go on, you deserve it!
Until 29 January, the Bishopsgate Library will be home to the News International: Wapping – 25 Years On exhibition, showing images and accounts of the Wapping dispute. For more information visit the Bishopsgate Institute website

Maire, our redoubtable manager and launderette stalwart since we opened in 1992, is back at work following a knee operation last October. We know Maire is a firm favourite with loads of you, and you’ll be as pleased as we are to see her back. Sadly as we welcome Maire back Mina has been taken ill and may be away from the launderette for some time, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that she’ll be back at work soon as we’ll all miss her.
