Congratulations to Honour our Troops - HOT - for the poppy presentations all over the town. Brilliant and very respectful of the fallen. HOT, supported by the community trust, is with Council approval and help going to make other improvements in the war memorial garden in 2018 on top of the regular grass-cutting viz:- - wooden seating round three tree trunks - two street lamps to create much-needed lighting. They will be electric-powered but with the appearance of Victorian gas lights - two garden seats on the tarmac areas - trimmed cherry trees - some more flower arrangements without creating a time-consuming garden. Everybody involved is hoping the community welcomes these improvements.

Households should be getting energy offers through the post or on the e-mail. Look at them carefully and make sure the correct details of your current contract are listed, to make a decent comparison. Also, other energy schemes on the website, be careful that they are including VAT. The Community Energy Switch always includes VAT whereas others don't. Need any help, 'phone 01890-882685.

Coldstream, and elsewhere, households will be receiving their Community Energy Switch offers, either in the post or over the email. It's useful to compare the offers with other websites but please take into account VAT.....the community energy switch offers clearly include VAT so make sure any other offers add VAT. The other dynamic to consider is that if you switch with us you direct a 'cut' (fee) for our community centre of £11 for a dual fuel switch and £5.50 for gas or electric.

The community trust and volunteers are in the middle of a 20 action project to confirm evidence of the impact heavy lorries are having on our High Street, especially the 44t ones from far afield. There is a reality that local lorries are important to the economy and they aren't the problem. By December, the project will produce a comprehensive report on EVIDENCE, which will then be passed to the community council, SBC and Police Scotland for possible SOLUTIONS.

Here is a note from John Fulton, Editor. Just to remind you all that the submission deadline for the winter edition of the Community News is Friday 10th November.  I look forward to receiving all your news, views, event details, reports, information, adverts etc, etc.  In this edition we publish a list of Coldstream's various clubs & organisations along with contact details for each.  If you know of any changes, omissions or additions since last year, please let me know.  If you want to check last year's list, please visit: http://coldstream.co/organisations/town-official/community-news/ and click on Winter 2016, then go to page 8. As you probably know, the Community News is part of Coldstream Gateway Association along with Coldstream In Bloom and Coldstream Christmas Lights.  In fact, there is a coffee morning this Saturday (28 October) in Coldstream Legion Club to raise funds towards our Christmas lights, so why not pop along and lend your support?  As always, all donations of items for the raffle, tombola and cake & candy would be greatly appreciated.  Items can be brought in to the Legion on Saturday morning before 10:15am or they can be handed in either to us at 28 High Street or to Will Murray at 1 Tweed Terrace.

SSE won the Autumn auction and households who asked for quotes will be receiving their offers from 23rd October which they can accept or refuse. It has to be made clear that energy contracts generally only last a year so when a house is notified of the end date, a new quote should be sought. The switching system is open on the front page.
