Painter and decorator Jim Docherty, 63, from Innerleithen said:

"One of my New Year's resolutions is to hope that Scotland stays part of Great Britain.

"I don't like Alex Salmond - I think he's up to something. I can't trust him.

"I've spoke to Christine Grahame, and I told her I'd not vote SNP, but I would vote for her again."

Musician and writer Jez Ippolito, 49, who lives in Peebles said:

"I have three New Year's resolutions. The first one is to stop drinking as well as many books as possible.

"I wrote a book called 'A Brief Musical History'.

"My final resolution is to help as many people as possible through the medium of music."

Hairdresser Hayley Peters, 25, who works in Peebles said:

"I'm not sure about 2013 yet, but my New Year's Resolution for 2012 was to be more adventurous.

"I ended up going skydiving, climbed up Ben Nevis, done some charity nights and got married.

"I was just bored of doing the same things all the time so decided to make the resolution."

Retired Kay McKay, 80, who recently moved to Peebles said:

"I did make a resolution, but I've forgotten what it was - must be the old age!

"I usually do have one but it doesn't last more than two weeks.

"My resolution for 2012 was to start writing in my diary once a week - but it didn't last long at all."
