Ironing Angel – About Us 

I grew up in Broadway, where my family had a large caravan park, and went to school in Worcester. From an early age I was busy serving customers in the site shop, and at the age of fourteen opened a coffee shop on the park. I’m a mother of four boys and live in Bicester with my partner, Patrick, and my youngest son Edward.

The Ironing Angel concept was created whilst I lived in North Dorset. Numerous customers of mine would say to me “you’re such an Angel” when they returned home to find their clothing pressed and ready.

In 2007 I moved to Bicester and started advertising my services on a more professional level. Ironing Angel started from home, in the lounge, to fit around school hours and my first three customers are still with us today.

The business soon outgrew the house and, in June 2010, we moved to our first business premises on Telford Road and recruited a team of Angels. This really changed my perspective of Ironing Angel and was the point that I really felt it became its own business.

We are an entirely family-funded business; two of my Sons have worked for us between school and college, and my partner Patrick deals with the accounts and administrative tasks.

In December 2011 I was introduced to The Laundry Company by a friend, who has a similar business in Bourton-on-the-Water. She called me and asked if I was interested in buying a laundry business in Chipping Norton, as the owners were planning to either sell or liquidate it. I went to see it, with my Team Leader, and fell in love with it immediately. I loved the Laundry Company, and the concept that the founders had created, and thought about how it would complement Ironing Angel. I started by working with the owner every day to learn the ropes and, on March 13th 2012, we acquired 100% of the shares in the Company.

In September 2013 we finally outgrew our premises on Telford Road and moved to larger premises on Wedgwood Road where we hope to continue growing and providing a professional and high quality service.

The motto for the team is:

…You are an Angel…

…You are not just a person that irons other people’s clothes…

…you are a professional person…

…representing a professional business…
