Sir, It was with great interest that I read in the Peeblesshire (November 28) that Brian McCrow, an Innerleithen Community Councillor, had said that he was not against people cycling on the pavement.

Sir, Further to letters in recent editions of your paper about cycling on pavements, can I point out that Innerleithen is not alone.

Sir, Unusually, I must agree with Mr Mundell - the Conservative Party’s philosophy has indeed formed the basis of the Smith Commission’s report. It is also clear that the Commission members did make an effort to compromise and work together – and produced a draft report.

Sir, It was with the greatest interest I read the story of the sale of Kingsmeadows Estate (Peeblesshire News, November 21).

SIR, Following last week’s leaflet through my letter box promoting the reinstatement of garden waste collection which Clovenfords never had in the first place I have now received a leaflet from a different political party extolling the many virtues of our local member of parliament.

SIR, This time last year a new initiative called Small Business Saturday was launched in the run-up to Christmas and urged everyone to get out and support their local High Streets, it is estimated the campaign delivered £460 million of spending with the UK’s small businesses.

AT this time of year Siskins are usually seen at the garden feeders particularly on Niger seed and also peanuts.

SIR, As local Peebles residents and supporters of the People’s NHS campaign, we would like to say how proud we are of our town for taking part in the People’s NHS Day of Action on November 12.

SIR, Over the last few months much has been written about the role of carers – those who provide care in a paid capacity - care support workers and those who care unpaid for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support carers.
30 Nov 2014 14:30
SIR, With the weather now becoming colder, I write on behalf of Peebles Old Parish Church of Scotland to remind everyone of the existence of the Peebles Coal Fund.

SIR, Once again Border Beasties would like to thank all our volunteers who have taken donations weekly to the Scottish Borders Donkey Sanctuary where they are always much appreciated.

SIR, May I add to Nancy’s experience of Eshiels Recycling centre (Peeblesshire News, November 14).
22 Nov 2014 07:30
SIR, Keele University’s somewhat triumphalist claim that the removal of MOD’s seismic restrictions on windfarms will allow a further 1.6 GW of wind-power generation in the Borders concerns me.
18 Nov 2014 15:30
SIR, Nobody will be surprised to learn that the garden refuse collections are not being reinstated by Scottish Borders Council.
17 Nov 2014 15:30
SIR, I refer to the report in last week’s paper regarding the future of the Chambers Institution trust. I have been approached by a number of people, anxious to know what is behind this decision.
16 Nov 2014 15:30
SIR, I write in response to the letter last week from Mr Borland ('labouring the point’).
15 Nov 2014 15:30
SIR, Andrew Farquhar’s attempt to get the council to rethink their policy on garden waste collection is admirable but I suspect will come to nothing – much like my attempts to deposit my garden waste at Eshiels Recycling Centre.
