SIR, I am certain that many pensioners would like to know more about the proposed changes to pension credit. I am sure the agriculture sector, whose income will be affected by leaving the European Union, would like to hear his views on the promised in/out EU referendum.
28 Feb 2015 13:30
SIR, I have no hesitation in saying that the SNP government at Holyrood are doing a good job. However, I cannot say the same for the SNP councillors leading the coalition at Scottish Borders Council.

SIR, The appeal for “fresh thinking” in R Walker’s letter might have been directed at any of our political parties, but its target was exclusively the SNP.

SIR, I would advise that I have recently received a copy of your newspaper for January 21 from a friend in Edinburgh. And I would like to write about your article entitled “Pensioners cut off by underpass floods”.
16 Feb 2015 09:30
SIR, I have recently received a copy of your paper and I have to say I was very sad to learn that it may be the end of the delightful and greatly enjoyable Scott’s Selkirk Christmas event.
12 Feb 2015 19:30
SIR, Can we really believe what councillors tell us?
9 Feb 2015 10:30
SIR, I keep receiving letters from the Twix brothers (you have seen the TV adverts), who have a factory pushing out the exact same product while at the same time telling the world they are different and are always falling out due to these differences.
7 Feb 2015 11:30
SIR, Every day we hear that people aren’t interested in politics. Well, that’s certainly not true in Peebles.
4 Feb 2015 15:30
SIR, Since last year’s announcement that Earlston Community Development Trust had been unsuccessful in obtaining Lottery funding for their play park proposal in Earlston, there has been no futher communication to the residents of Earlston or the Community Council, about their intentions.
26 Jan 2015 09:30
SIR, I write with regards to Mr Heatlie’s letter last week concerning teaching today.
25 Jan 2015 11:30
SIR, I have just received a publication through the post entitled The Borders News. Local newspaper distributors need not worry for it is a only a political flier camouflaged to look like a friendly information sheet.
24 Jan 2015 11:30
SIR, Why on earth would one pay to get on a train, be taken through beautiful countryside, to get off at the other end to go indoors and pay again to gawp at a tapestry? At £10 a shot - prices go up, not down!
23 Jan 2015 12:30
SIR, I refer to Councillor Aitchison’s letter published in the Border Telegraph. It can only really be described as an attempt to excuse the inexcusable.
22 Jan 2015 11:30
SIR, It is indeed a bizarre situation, as Alex Orr observes in his letter in which Labour Scotland can grudge £95 million for primary school meals while supporting Trident’s replacement at £100 billion.
21 Jan 2015 16:30
SIR, As a lifelong resident of Peebles, I have been most interested to follow the advances reported in the Peeblesshire News for the revitalisation of the trust required to run the town’s valuable asset the Chambers Institution.
20 Jan 2015 12:30
SIR, In December I moved a motion against the use of public money to fund the construction of a building to house the Great Tapestry of Scotland.
20 Jan 2015 11:30
SIR, I am astonished that the Scottish Borders Council have approved the Great Tapestry of Scotland to go to a visitor centre at Tweedbank.
19 Jan 2015 13:30
SIR, I was amazed that Scottish Borders Council Education Portfolio Holder Councillor Sandy Aitchison has concerns that the current average pupil to teacher ratio in the Borders has risen to 13.7, yes only 13.7!
19 Jan 2015 12:30
SIR, I am happy to share my delight at receiving through the post a millionaire’s acceptance form from an Irish Lottery group inviting me to meet an award auditor to accept a cheque for several million pounds, possibly as much as £15 million.
18 Jan 2015 12:30
SIR, There is not a question of supporting one project such as the Great Tapestry of Scotland at the expense of another tourist related development such as AIMUp.
