Court­ing cou­ple

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Views -

Oliver Sneath and Dorota Szafalowski are look­ing for­ward to mov­ing into their new home...it’s cer­tainly a bit dif­fer­ent.The cou­ple have bought the for­mer Spald­ing Mag­is­trates’ Court! Many moons ago as a cub re­porter I cut my court re­port­ing teeth in that very build­ing. I won­der if the deal in­cluded fix­tures and fit­tings, specif­i­cally the old press bench? If it did they will find my ini­tials carved in it along with those of many oth­ers as tra­di­tion dic­tated. Yes, I know tech­ni­cally it’s crim­i­nal dam­age but for­tu­nately for me I was never caught in that court act!
