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.
14 Nov 2014 15:00
SIR, On behalf of the Rotary Club of Innerleithen Walkerburn & Traquair, may I through the courtesy of your columns, thank everyone who supported the Bonfire and Firework Display on November 5 at the Health Centre field, Innerleithen.
13 Nov 2014 14:30
SIR, It was interesting to see some important issues about sport in Peebles raised by a reader in last week’s letters.
12 Nov 2014 14:30
SIR, I write on behalf of Peebles Netball Committee in response to the letter titled “Awards for All please” which was printed in the Peeblesshire News on October 31.
11 Nov 2014 16:30
SIR, At this time of year, our thoughts turn to the brave servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice whilst serving our nation.
10 Nov 2014 14:30
SIR, I am from Australia and not sure if you will be able to help me. I have some World War Two service medals from a Robert (Bob) Thomson (not sure if he has a “p”) who lived in Peebles, except for a stint in Australia in the 1980s.
9 Nov 2014 14:30
SIR, Having watched the stone-cleaning at the Peebles war memorial which I presume has to be finished before November 11, I hope after 45 years in the building industry that what I see today (October 29) is not the finished job?
8 Nov 2014 14:30
SIR, National surveys have shown that the majority of people in Scotland do not want weapons of mass destruction in our beautiful Clyde estuary.
7 Nov 2014 14:30
SIR, The dust is yet to settle after the Scottish referendum where by the powers that be; “Westminster” have appointed Lord Smith of Kelvin to oversee the consultation with all interested Scottish parties, organisations and individuals with the hope of coming up with Devo-Max!
6 Nov 2014 09:00
SIR, What a sad, depressing, small minded, nasty and mean letter from Jason Tyszko ('Beggars a Big Issue in Peebles’).
5 Nov 2014 09:00
SIR, I read with interest the article 'Poverty in Peebles is 'unacceptable’ in last week’s Peeblesshire News, but so is begging.
4 Nov 2014 09:00
SIR, I would like to thank over 100 people from Innerleithen who participated in a recent questionnaire and street survey or posted their answers in the box in the local post office.
3 Nov 2014 09:00
SIR, I was puzzled to read that Peebles Netball had recently received an 'Awards for All’ grant towards its activities. I am hugely supportive of money being put into sport at local level, however, priority should be given to sports clubs and organisations who are fully inclusive.
2 Nov 2014 09:00
SIR, So Catriona Bhatia thinks it “odd” that the Spanish nationality of a thief in Peebles, who stole a mobile phone and a bank card, was mentioned by the Police (Councillor upset over police disclosure, Peeblesshire News). It was of interest to me, and I am not a UKIP supporter.
1 Nov 2014 09:00
SIR, Johann Lamont tells us she is “proud of what we have achieved over the last three years”, especially the referendum:
31 Oct 2014 09:00
SIR, Whilst Democracy itself is effectively 'the oppression of the minority by the majority’; can there ever be any justification to ignore the legitimate concerns of voters?
