Dry Cleaning Service Cheltenham


With the latest Government Information on the easing of the lockdown situation in England we at Grays are planning to re-open our complete business again from Monday 15th June 2020.

As with many town centre businesses the past few years have not been easy, on top of all of the general problems in retail we have also had to contend with a damaging fire in our premises as well as now, like everyone else having to deal with the Covid 19 crisis.

Along with a lot of companies we have sadly had to reduce our work force and since the lockdown came into force have only been able to carry on with our laundry and dry cleaning service as this was deemed to be an essential service.

Assuming all goes well we are hoping that the Government will permit us to open fully on Monday 15th June 2020.

We will however have to make some changes in the way that the business is run.

From this date (15th June 2020) our opening hours will be as follows.

Monday 8.30 – 4.30
Tuesday 8.30 – 4.30
Wednesday CLOSED
Thursday 8.30 – 4.30
Friday 8.30 – 4.30
Saturday 9.00 – 2.00
(However we may close early until trade has been fully regained, please call before you visit)

We hope that this doesn’t cause you any inconvenience and are looking forward to continuing to give you our best service in the future.

Many thanks for your continued custom and support.

About the Directors

Colin Wordley Grays of Cheltenham


Colin took the Grays of Cheltenham business on in 1995. Colin cut his teeth working with Sketchley and Johnsons Dry Cleaning outfits. Colin was crowned ‘Shoe Repairer of the Year’ in 2000, up against some 1000+ top shoe repairers across the UK. He also works for Herrings Shoes repairing Loakes, Church’s etc.

In his spare time Colin loves nothing more than getting out and about with the family, cycling, running, swimming and also…. he is a mad netballer and plays mixed social netball with Netball Fun League.

Jo Wordley Grays of Cheltenham


Jo joined Sketchley when she was still at school as a Saturday assistant. After leaving school she was offered a part-time position at the company and gradually, through hard work and dedication worked her way up the Sketchley ladder. She also worked very closely with Dragonfly Bridal Wear, ensuring the best results for the brides’ special day.

You could say that Jo is a little obsessed with netball, sometimes playing 3-4 nights a week. She even managed to persuade husband Colin to take part. They both play in the same mixed netball team on Sundays!
