Cou­ple’s dream home is court

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

If Oliver Sneath and Dorota Szafalow­icz have their way the for­mer Spald­ing Mag­is­trates’ Court will be their dream home. The cou­ple, both em­ployed in the food in­dus­try, have be­come the court’s new own­ers af­ter sealed ten­der bids were in­vited for the build­ing by the Min­istry of Jus­tice. It took 11 months of view­ings, bid­ding and ne­go­ti­at­ing to seal the deal, but now Oliver and Dorota can call them­selves the “wards of court” – in Spald­ing at least. Dorota said: “When we bought the build­ing there were two dif­fer­ent re­ac­tions from peo­ple. One group said ‘this is too much’ and ‘why couldn’t you buy a nor­mal house?’, whereas other peo­ple said ‘this is re­ally amaz­ing’ and ‘we re­ally ad­mire your de­ter­mi­na­tion’.”
