Readers will be aware that the Meldon’s picnic site has been a mess with rubbish left lying around by inconsiderate litter louts

So, West Coast Energy are still at it, trying to put their case for wind turbines to Community Councils behind closed doors (Hag Law wind farm plans ‘deeply concerning’ in Peeblesshire News, September 12).

Sir, I would like to thank all the members of Tweed Valley Pétanque Club for organising such a fun event on Sunday, September 21 to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Sir, We understand that, in order to save money, Scottish Borders Council are considering a proposal to close the Tweedsmuir polling station, so that voters will have to travel to Broughton in future unless they are prepared to use a postal vote.
18 Sep 2014 07:30
SIR, I REFER to an article published in the Peeblesshire News on Friday, August 15: ‘Care home fees and the family home’.
17 Sep 2014 07:00
SIR, WHEN it comes to the referendum, people will vote no and people will vote yes, and it is wonderful that people can agree to disagree and be respectful to each other - a great example to the world.

Sir, Having read the Peeblesshire News and the national press reports on the situation at West Linton Primary School, can we say how disappointed we are in the way that the headteacher has been treated by the Scottish Borders Council education department and also vilified by some of the parents of pupils at the school.
16 Sep 2014 07:00
Sir, With reference to your article ‘No witch-hunt at West Linton’ (Peeblesshire News, September 5), it reads as if the Inspection report was made public and almost immediately afterwards the headteacher was “removed” from her post.
15 Sep 2014 07:45
SIR, AS your columns have shown, interest in the referendum has been sustained over two years: uniquely for a political issue.
14 Sep 2014 08:30
SIR, AS a citizen of and believer in democracy, I applaud the efforts of the Scots.
12 Sep 2014 11:25
I NOTICE that in last week's Peebleshire News that John Ross Scott is yet another Yes supporter who is trying to delude the Scottish public into believing that "the future of the NHS in Scotland can only be secured with a Yes vote".
12 Sep 2014 07:00
Sir, I am a patriotic Anglo-Scot and have no vote, I’m not a member of any political party.
24 Aug 2014 07:30
Sir, I was astonished to read in the Peeblesshire News of August 15 that councillor Gavin Logan is claiming that he voted against the removal of the green waste collection from the Scottish Borders.
23 Aug 2014 07:30
Sir, I have recently been impressed by the work of Oxfam Scotland, which, as a member of the Disasters Emergency Committee, has launched a politically impartial Gaza Crisis Appeal that I believe it is worth drawing the attention of your readers to.
7 Aug 2014 07:00
Sir, Your report in the Peeblesshire News, July 25, refers to ’killer hornets’. These were almost certainly not hornets but were wood wasps.
6 Aug 2014 08:00
Sir, I write this letter (my first to a newspaper) as a motorist, cyclist and walker.
4 Aug 2014 07:30
SIR, The charming tale and eloquent metaphor of the little island by our main Peebles bridge (Yoursay, July 25) evinced a happy innocence of togetherness as appropriately local as the fairy story beside it of the Cardrona deer.
