Sir, It was pleasing to see that the most recent Peebles Community Council meeting was reported so fully in this week’s edition of the Peeblesshire News.
24 Nov 2013 08:30
Sir, I really must respond to Councillor Archibald’s column in last week’s Peeblesshire News. If he continues to peddle so much nonsense and part truths we will have to start calling him Mr Salmond. In

Sir, There have been lots of upsetting cases of child abuse and neglect in the news recently. Hearing these tragic stories has been heart-wrenching.

Sir, I am baffled by the report in last week’s Peeblesshire News that a motion to ban pay day loan companies websites from appearing on Scottish Borders Council computers has again been turned down for discussion and support by the SNP/LibDem administration.

Sir, It is to be welcomed that Scottish Borders Council is now undertaking a wider and meaningful public consultation regarding the need and site of a possible new bridge over the Tweed.

Sir, I read with some incredulity David Knox’s article on SBC’s latest attempt to push forward with a 2nd bridge in Peebles to enable another 600 – 700 houses to be built south of the Tweed. Interestingly, there was and has been no mention of the Transport Workshop organised by SBC and held in the Burgh Hall on the 3rd of October. This was attended by many of the relevant bodies in Peebles, including Peebles Community Council and was basically to thrash out whether a new bridge was required and if it was, where it should go and what it should look like – sound familiar?
