Sir, After reading Susan Hill’s impression last week of Selkirk Community Council, as a current serving member, I can’t disagree with one word she said.

Sir, I believe that in the press recently the Scottish Borders was rated as one of the worst places to live, and I am appalled by that conclusion.

Sir, I really must respond to Councillor Archibald’s column. If he continues to pedal so much nonsense and part truths we will have to start calling him Mr Salmond.

We all wish the very best for those closest to us, especially if they are making the transition to retirement. For many, later life can be the most enjoyable and satisfying of all. When we think about loved ones in this position, our main priority is making sure they are settled in a place that is right for them.

Sir, I read your piece, with interest, on Graeme McIver. An ex-employee of Galashiels – based company ILS. (Independent Living Services) With so much negativity around these days concerning care companies, it’s all too easy to forget who the real heroes are, and that’s the carers themselves.

Sir, We are in the same position as your resident C Reavely but we are nearer than he is and after numerous visits in July and August to BAM we had some of their staff come on August 7 to take readings at the back door of our house and front - the readings were to see if any damage was caused by the strong vibrations that we are having at our property.

Sir, I would like to respond to one man’s view expressed through your columns of last week’s papers regarding working conditions and standards of care at home at Independent Living Services in his period of our employ during six months last year. We have come a long way since then.

Sir, I refer to the reports in last week’s editions of the Border Telegraph which highlighted the cancellation of the Pay Day Loan debate which was an agenda item at the last meeting of the Scottish Borders Council.
