We regularly feature the people behind the businesses at Milford Waterfront. We speak to everyone from artists and chefs to personal trainers to learn about their special skills and talents, their favourite dishes/items for sale, what they enjoy most about working at Milford Waterfront and lots more!
This month we speak to Sandra Mullins, the Owner of Spot On Dry Cleaners & Laundry, a family run business with over 30 years of experience in the industry. Sandra and the team continue to operate during the Covid-19 pandemic, taking care of all of your laundry needs and helping you to avoid the risks associated with home washing.
What is the best thing about working at Milford Waterfront?
The community spirit here is amazing and all of the businesses support each other. Most of the outlets locally have used our services at some time and many are regular customers.
The view is amazing too and we all love watching the boats come and go. I couldn’t think of a better place or a nicer environment in which to work.
Is there anything people should know about Spot On Dry Cleaners & Laundry that they may not know?
All dry cleaning and laundry is performed here on site. We are here for domestic customers, as well as being able to do contract work. We clean a variety of items from clothing, bedding and towels, to workwear and suits and sports kits. We also offer a very competitively priced linen hire service.
We have a great team here who between them all have over 70 years in the industry. They are all very experienced and are able to offer advice and guidance on any queries people may have.
We also offer a very popular FREE collection and delivery service throughout most of Pembrokeshire.
Have you got any special skills or talents?
Not really, but I do have a passion for grass roots football. Before starting the business, I was the Chairman of Sully Sports Football Club for a number of years and worked for the Football Association of Wales, South Wales FA and South Wales Girls League in a children’s safeguarding role.
My involvement in this led to me winning the Unsung Hero Award at the Vale of Glamorgan Sports Personality of the Year Awards…something I am very proud of.
Since opening we have been keen supporters and also sponsors of Milford Haven United FC.
What is your favourite item at Spot On Dry Cleaners & Laundry and why?
The item that gives me the greatest satisfaction has to be wedding dresses. There’s nothing better than seeing the look on a new bride’s face when you have removed wine, mud and other stains and brought their precious garment back to looking like new – priceless.
I have many years’ experience in this industry having worked in a number of very busy dry cleaners in and around Cardiff. As well as local people, I have cleaned dresses for brides from as far away as Birmingham and Plymouth.
What has been your favourite day at work and why?
Everyday is very different and we are making new memories all the time. When I was told a few years ago that we were finalists in the Radio Pembrokeshire Business Awards that was a special moment as it was a public vote. We really do love our customers.
