spaciallyaware is the brainchild of Nick and Alex Ware who moved from Surrey to the Norfolk Coast with their children in 1988, having come to know and love the area during many holidays and long weekends.
With a law degree from Kingston University, Alex trained as a solicitor in London, qualifying in 1977. She has had considerable experience of property law, working in-house for a residential and commercial developer, in private practice and latterly as a principal solicitor with an in-house legal team in Norwich. Alex holds a current practising certificate from the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
Her organisational and problem solving skills stood Alex in good stead while working as an administrator within the social services department at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Citizens Advice Bureau, King’s Lynn.
Working as a volunteer with Norfolk Constabulary, in partnership with the Borough Council and other agencies, has
provided a valuable insight into the problems facing the local community and how action plans are able to address them.
Two successful charity fundraising sales of new and pre-loved designer and high street fashion and accessories, together with a much enjoyed charity event involving a Fortnums-style afternoon tea and sale of new and pre-loved bags (Bag It!), have provided some of the inspiration for the creation of spaciallyaware.
In March 2018, Alex was presented by the Mayor of King’s Lynn with a Certificate of Recognition for her services to Norfolk Constabulary.
With a law degree from Kingston University, Nick spent his professional career practising personal injury litigation in London, King’s Lynn and Cambridge. His legal training and many years in the profession have provided him with highly developed organisational, analytical and problem solving skills.
Nick previously served as chairman of the Parents’ Committee of his children’s prep school and subsequently as a governor and company secretary. As a police support volunteer with Norfolk Constabulary, in partnership with the Borough Council and other agencies, he is aware of issues and problems confronting the local community and the active steps being taken to deal with them.
Since retiring from the law, Nick devotes his spare time to collecting and researching books and collectibles.
