Paul Buckley was the development manager for the “Pizza Heaven” chain of restaurants who was interested in buying Alma Baldwin’s share of Jim's Cafe when she was forced to sell following a downturn in husband Mike’s business as a major contract had been cancelled. Paul was interested in the property and wanted to close the deal within a fortnight, subject to surveys. He returned the next day with his more doubtful colleague, Michael Pearce, but before they could sign on the dotted line, Roy Cropper raised the funds to buy Alma out.
