With the recent spectacular turn of events in regard to the fate of St Paul’s, Speculator readers may not be surprised to hear that the indefatigable Gail Lyons has spent a considerable amount of time burrowing through ancient documents and archives to get to the bottom of the mystery around the Church’s true ownership.
In the course of so doing, the girl Lyons has racked up a bit of an unbudgeted legal bill, as she has wanted to ensure the documents she has uncovered have been properly interpreted.
The bill? A princely $2,000. A remaining fund from the Church’s activities should handle $500 of that, so waddya reckon Speculatum readers? Can we raise $1500 for the girl Gail as a token of appreciation for her efforts?
The Speculator pledges $50 to get it going.
If you want to contribute, you can do either or both of two things;
1: Make a Donation
a) send a cheque made out to GAIL LYONS to:
c/- The Devonport Speculator
PO BOX 32-560
b) If you have long given up the quaint tradition of writing cheques, you can make a transfer to The Speculator’s account – clearly identifying it as for Gail – and The Speculator will do the rest.
Our details are;
