Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports on the publication; ‘LINCOLNSHIRE LIVE’

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; Incorrect Reporting

How can Lincolnshire Live credit themselves with being ‘newsworthy’ when on 3rd August 2020 when they publish photos like these with unjustifiable criticism;

yet a fellow reporter publishes a separate article 4 days earlier namely;

https://www.lincolnshirelive.co.uk/news/local-news/locals-react-boston-teen-assault-4380217 along with photos such as these which clearly discredits the newsworthiness of not only a fellow work colleague at Lincolnshire Live but completely contradicts the worthiness of the above article;

I forwarded a totally unbiased comment to the Lincolnshire Live ‘Comments’ section pointing out the lack of newsworthiness and clearly pointing out their strive for ‘newsworthy sensation’ which on this occasion was clearly flawed by their very own reporters ………………. So far they have refused to publish my comments on their online comments page. Which if you see the link below, this also received adverse comments from local members of the public with regard to the newsworthiness of the article; (their comments have now also been removed by Lincolnshire Live!). Clearly, Lincolnshire Live only like complimentary comments about themselves and any comments, which criticises Lincolnshire Live, are edited out. What happened to free speech?

My comments were as follows; on the following link;

“It is disappointing that Matty Hewitt; the reporter of the above at Lincolnshire Live has nothing more relevant, or up-to-date to report on!

The premises became the scene of a police investigation after they were broken into shortly after the ex-tenant moved out. The mess was caused by the offending party/parties and the situation reported to the Police”.

“It remained in this state whilst the premises were under a covert investigation by the Police utilising the CCTV”.

“The Council were made aware of the situation as well as the ongoing Police investigation”.

“Entry was regained to the premises in July; cleaned out and windows whited-out so as to be more presentable to local residents and other shop owners in the area, whilst it remains empty during the Covid-19 period”.

Sam Atkin at Lincolnshire Live posted a report on Red Lion Street in Boston on 31st July 2020 showing a photo of the very same shop premises; clean & tidy with whited-out windows; see link; https://www.lincolnshirelive.co.uk/news/local-news/locals-react-boston-teen-assault-4380217

Sorry guys! But your report posted today; (3rd August 2020) is ‘old news’ and clearly very much out of date!





Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports on; MALTSTERS RESTAURANT

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; Excellent Norfolk Pub Grub and Beer!

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; we have visited Maltsters Restaurant on many occasion; the first time by accident whilst on a day out trip driving around Norfolk. Since then, we have been on several Norfolk Broad boating holidays and have always made this place a regular stop as it is situated right next to Malthouse Broad which has ideal facilities if you are mooring up for the day or overnight.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; we have never been disappointed with the food, whether it has been a quick snack or an evening meal. The beer is a welcome extra in idyllic surroundings. We found the place to be clean and well presented whether eating inside or outside.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; if you are lucky enough to find it, there is a secret little walking path about 500 metres from the Maltsters Restaurant, just off Broad Road which takes you through a beautiful wooded area to a hide overlooking Ranworth Broad which has been developed into a high quality Information Centre about the area on the Broads.

PART 5 OF 5 – Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports on; KOMBO BEACH HOTEL

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; Kombo – One of the Best Beach Hotel Locations!

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; we have always found the best bar and restaurant along the beach is ‘Sailor Boy’ (‘Sailors’, for short) where the local beer is 50 Dalasi per bottle (£1.00) and they have an excellent wooden structured balcony with a thatched roof which stretches out above the beach towards the sea surrounded by palm trees. The food here is also very reasonable and very tasty, especially after a hard day’s sunbathing and a few beers; this is an excellent location.

PART 4 OF 5 – Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports on; KOMBO BEACH HOTEL

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; Kombo – One of the Best Beach Hotel Locations!

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; never choose a sun-bed frontline as you will be pestered all day long by the numerous touts selling their wares which can be rather tiresome after the first day. They are controlled by the hotel security and only one tout is allowed to talk to one hotel guest at once.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; there are also the ‘fruit ladies’ who will serve you delightful fresh fruit prepared on a plate for between 200–350 Gambian Dalasi (£4.00-£7.00). Our favourite lady is ‘Isha No.18’; who we have remained loyal to on each of our visits as she tends to give more fruit than the others. Likewise, ‘Aladin’ will also do a special price for freshly made fruit drinks and smoothies if you remain his loyal customer.

PART 3 OF 5 – Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports on; KOMBO BEACH HOTEL

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; Kombo – One of the Best Beach Hotel Locations!

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; the Kombo Beach Hotel is not an all-inclusive but once you have had your breakfast which is included, the remainder of the day can be spent eating and drinking in the numerous reasonably priced bars along the beachfront.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; there are four accommodation blocks to this resort; the first one which overlooks the pool suffers from excessive noise from the entertainment which is close-by. Blocks 2 & 3 are ideal and just a short walk to the restaurant for breakfast and less than a minute’s walk from your sun-bed on the beach to your room, (if you happen to have forgotten something!) We have never stayed in Block 4 as it always appears to be slightly too far away from the restaurant and there is no immediate or direct access to the beach.
