Laundromat has total makeover
HAVING only been open a few days, the revamped Biggenden Laundromat has received a positive response.
Owners Jim and Colleen Cunliffe felt it was in the town’s best interests to revive the facility.
Mrs Cunliffe said the laundromat had received some bad press especially on Facebook posts by the travelling public.
“The laundromat is a much needed facility with people running out of water in the present drought,” she said.
It has been a family affair getting the laundromat back up and running, with builder son Kris Keet in charge of the building and grandson Damien the cleaning, both following Colleen’s orders.

On Sunday, Dallarnil resident Tricia Radziwill was taking advantage of the upgraded facility.
“I’ve only just paid for a load of water during the past week,” she said.
“I wasn’t counting on the predicted rain.”
Mrs Radziwill said while the drought continued, she would be using the laundromat.
“I do like it,” she said. Mrs Cunliffe said having the laundromat served a double purpose.
“It’s been great,” she said. “As I close the laundromat at 6pm I fill up all the machines with all the motel’s washing. Then when I come back in the morning, the washing is done.”
The laundromat has four front loader washing machines able to carry from 10kg to 16kg, along with a dryer.
