About us

about – westendreport.com is a news and lifestyle online magazine for Glasgow’s West End.

westendreport.com is run and edited by a professional journalist, with contributions from other writers and journalists, all based in Glasgow’s West End. westendreport.com aims to celebrate the people of this community, providing news, reviews and information, and featuring local shops, services and businesses. It’s hoped to ultimately develop westendreport.com commercially, including adverts and sponsorship from local businesses and organisations. However, the priority is building a lively site with high-quality content.

policy – Any venue, outlet, product or service featured is to help inform and/or entertain westendreport.com readers.  westendreport.com does not endorse or recommend any specific businesses or organisations. When it comes to reviews – whether an exhibition or a new restaurant – these will reflect the individual experience of the writer.

westendreport.com is a local website and will always be looking to promote and support our West End neighbours – so you should find reviews to be informative, helpful and generally positive. When westendreport.com does feature products or services, we do our best to ensure prices and other details are correct at the time of going to press – but readers should always double-check this and availability with stores or providers.

Most westendreport.com travel features arise from the journeys and holidays of the writer. On some occasions, as professional journalists, we are invited to take part in organised press trips. If the travel piece was researched upon such a trip, this will always be stated, for reasons of clarity.  Although, as with every other area of westendreport.com, writers will always aim to be accurate, fair, informative and independent of view.

All editorial copy is independent of advertisers and sponsors. Sponsored material and advertisements are clearly marked as such.

affiliates – Running westendreport.com is hugely enjoyable but it does take time and money. It’s hoped westendreport.com will eventually be funded by featuring adverts and sponsorship from local businesses and organisations. In the meantime, westendreport.com will include links to some carefully-chosen affiliate organisations. Readers may find it useful to use these direct links when planning a purchase – or not. But if you do choose to click on the links, then you will be helping to support westendreport.com.

privacy – westendreport.com respects your privacy – if you email us, those details or your address will not be sold or passed on to any other organisation. WEreport will only email you in response to your initial contact, or as part of any ongoing dialogue arising from that.
