Borders landscape is threatened by rash of wind farm development

Do I stay British or will I become Scottish?

Sir, I was born in the Netherlands, came to England in 1961, to Scotland and Peebles in 1962 and applied for and was granted British Citizenship in 1989. That was for me a major decision.

How many more magical ideas will SBC come out with?

SIR, As a former railwayman, I was a track worker, it seem’s like Scottish Borders Council’s proposals to build a home for the Holyrood Tapestry at Tweedbank is perhaps rather late in the day because they have realised that there will be few off peak passengers on the Borders Railway travelling south of Midlothian.

Keep Peebles a bike friendly town

Sir, As someone who has now lived in the Tweed Valley area for over 20 years I have witnessed the fantastic upsurge in outdoor pursuits and in particular the phenomenon of cycling both on and off road that this corner of Scotland offers.

62 service is 'worst bus’

Sir, I am writing because I am very concerned about the First Bus “service” from Edinburgh to Galashiels and the loss of what I feel is a very much needed link with Borders General Hospital (BGH).
