Rutland Laundry in Oakham reopened on Monday, much to the delight of owners Terry and Mandy Black six months after a fire.
The blaze destroyed equipment in the Melton Road premises, on April 8. But help arrived from two quarters - Oakham School lent its in-house facility so the service could continue and Rutland Building Services put up a temporary building - speeding up the reopening. Mr Black said: “It’s good be back. We’re very grateful for all the help.”
