The unerringly-benevolent Wanda  – the face of Devonport’s Ike’s Emporium and one of  The Speculator’s 10 favourite things about Devonport – has been left with little after a fire destroyed her house in Bayswater.

The fire, which struck early evening on the 4th May, razed Wanda’s house to the ground. The police do not consider the fire to be suspicious.

The Stone Oven is currently running a collection at the counter; please given generously.

The Speculator hopes to publish more information on this story shortly.


  1. Ann Allen says:

    Thank you for letting us know about Wanda and the fire at her home. I have been the recipient of Wanda’s generosity I am glad to be able to help in any way I can. And I know that the community of Devonport will be there to help her too.

    Wanda, know that we are all thinking of you, sending you love and will offer support

    Anneke – do you know what is needed apart from donations?. And can stuff be dropped off somewhere?

  3. Anneke says:

    Thank you for giving publicity to Wanda’s problems. She is such a wonderful woman, I hope that many will show their gratitude & friendship in a helpful way. I definitely will. Perhaps Speculator can make other Shore publications aware of Wanda’s plight.

  4. Sarah says:

    Very sorry to hear of Wanda’s bad fortune – I hope the Devonport community will rally round in the way I have seen so often in the past. Best wishes to you Wanda and family – you are much loved in our community x
