Hello everyone and Happy New Year to
you all!!
I hope you all had a great Christmas and
you’ve managed to get the kids back down
to earth! I love Christmas and with my kids
getting older, now 8, 11 & 12, it’s getting
even more and more enjoyable. They were
so excited and it’s so pleasing to see their
faces when opening their presents.
That’s 2015 upon us and there’s a lot to
look forward to if like me, you’re a Scotland
sports fan. There’s the 6 Nations starting on
6th Feb, the Cricket World Cup starting on
14th Feb, in Sep/Oct the Rugby World Cup
and the remaining qualifiers for Euro’16,
what a year!!
There’s a lot going on in this month’s Kelso
Life too, so please take the opportunity to
get yourself a cup of coffee, pull up a chair
and enjoy the January 2015 issue of Kelso
Life.
Richard
Copy deadline for the February issue is

New Year, New group, Slimming Success
for Men and Women in Kelso
On top of making their Christmas lists and planning their
Christmas shopping, members of the brand new Kelso Slimming
World group have been embarking on a mission to slim down
for Christmas and the New Year and seen so much success
already.
Becky Scott, who recently opened the Kelso Slimming World
group, says: "Christmas and New year holidays is a wonderful
time of year with so much to celebrate, but if you’re feeling
unhappy with your weight it can also be a very difficult time –
there’s the fear of feeling uncomfortable in every party outfit and
the worry that you might lose control completely and end up
heavier than you were before.
Tuesday 5.30pm & 7.30pm
Gordon Fox Dance Academy,
Kelso
Tel: Becky 07856379432
Each week in our group we have been sharing recipes, advice
and ideas for coping with potential challenges. From parties to
January sales shopping trips we’ve helped one another to
rediscover the magic of holidays while still achieving our
dreams.
"People often think it sounds too good to be true, but by making
some careful choices and getting the right support it is possible
to get through the holiday and start the new year without
gaining more weight, our members can look forward to a new
year and a new lifestyle.
The Kelso Slimming World group is held every Tuesday at
5.30pm and 7.30pm at Gordon Fox Dance Acadamy. New
members can simply pop along or call Becky on 07856379432.

Gardening Tales from Woodside
The deepest depths of winter can be a miserable time for gardeners. But don't worry, Spring
will be with us soon and we can now spend useful time planning what we are going to do with
the garden this year. Now that Christmas is past we can really turn our thoughts to the season
ahead. January is a good month to evaluate the previous year in the garden. Did you manage to
grow enough vegetables to keep you going right up to Christmas? Gardening magazines are fond
of telling us that we should be able to produce vegetables all year round - they've obviously never
experienced an average Scottish Borders winter! I tend to think of it as being a successful year if
the majority of vegetables on the table at Christmas have come from the garden. So this year
we've grown enough leeks and parsnips, but need to grow more carrots. These three vegetables
store well in the ground - that is you don't have to harvest them until you need them. They'll sit
quite happily in the ground until you're ready. In fact parsnips improve with the frost.
It's the time of year to get your Kelsae Onions sown. You should sow them into trays filled with a
fine compost which should be firmed gently. Thinly scatter the seeds on the compost and cover
with about 1/4 inch of sieved compost. The ideal temperature for germination is 15-20⁰C, so
place in a propagator, heated greenhouse or a suitable window sill. Once the seeds have
germinated and have sprouted they need to be kept at about 18⁰C for around 2-3 weeks. After
this they can be kept slightly cooler, but need good light and ventilation. Once they have
developed leaves and are big enough to handle they can be pricked out individually into cells or
small pots to grow on before you plant them outside, usually in early May. You should plant
them into ground that has been well dug and manured over the winter - that's something you
could be doing now to burn off some of those excess Christmas calories. A pH of about 7 seems
to work best, so you might need to add lime if your ground is too acidic. An application of Blood,
Fish and Bone is useful too, to give them a good start. If all the sowing and pricking out sounds
too complicated, then simply phone me at Woodside to place an order for plants which we grow
for you at Newton Don. These will be ready towards the end of April (depending on the weather)
and are ready for planting out in early May. I would urge you all to have a go at growing this
wonderful exhibition onion and to consider taking part in the Autumn Flower Show held
annually in the Tait Hall and organised by Kelso Horticultural Society which has various
categories for Kelsae Onions. If that seems a bit daunting, why not hold your own competition for
the heaviest onion with your friends and neighbours?
You should also keep an eye open for damage to the garden at this time of year - from snow,
winds or hares and deer, and protect plants accordingly. Upright conifers can be tied up with
strong twine to stop them being forced open by the weight of heavy snow, and branches that
have been snapped by the wind should be neatly pruned to a bud and treated with "Seal and
Heal" to prevent infection. Susceptible plants should be protected from animal damage with tree
guards for individual plants and a frame of chicken netting for groups. Plants that are prone to
very cold icy weather should be protected by horticultural fleece to keep them cosy. But don't
worry - the evenings will soon start to get longer and the better weather will be with us before we
know it!
In the meantime, Happy Gardening!

Stamp Duty
All Change-Both Sides
The Tweed No More
Kelso
Blogger
The changes to Stamp Duty brought in by the Chancellor George
Osborne in the “Autumn” Statement introduced a long overdue reform
of this iniquitous burden on house buyers. We have been calling for change to this broken system back
in 2005 so better late than never! The announcement affects purchasers in Scotland as well as those
throughout the rest of the United Kingdom and came into effect on 4 December. It won’t have gone
unnoticed that this follows hot on the heels of the post referendum Scottish Government’s announcement
that they will reform Stamp Duty in Scotland but with the uniquely Scottish system delayed until 1 April
2015. After that we will have two systems running in tandem and in some sectors of the market this
will provide a stark contrast on the tax levied on purchasers, depending on what side of the Border the
property lies on, so it will no longer be the same both sides The Tweed!
Both schemes address the unfairness of paying increased rates on the whole of the price if the price
exceeded the set cut off points. This inevitably led to a “black Hole” at the margins and was particularly
pronounced at properties around £250,000 where it jumped to 3% and buyers were reluctant to pay an
extra £5000 or more in tax when the price was over that cut off. This also affect the lower end with a
sudden jump at £125,000 from exempt to paying over £1250 and sellers invariably lost out and had to
compromise and sell below value or risk losing the sale. The good news is that will no longer be a factor
and buyers will face a bonus of little or no stamp duty. The real winners from the changes will be those
buying just over the threshold for example a purchase at £140,000 was £1400 and will now be £300
and after April in Scotland that further reduces to £100. As prices are likely to firm up as sellers grow in
confidence smart buyers may be wise to buy early and it’s worth remembering Scotland now shares the
full benefits with the rest of the UK with all buyers able to take advantage of the “new” UK rates with
immediate effect. As well as encouraging buyers this also addresses the fear of a stalled property market
due to buyers delaying their purchase until April to take advantage of savings. Taken as a whole for the
vast majority the changes are a positive, particularly the end to the blanket application of rates to the whole
of the price, and the changes introduce an initial allowance £125,000 (increasing to £135,000 for Scotland
only in April 2015) which isn’t lost as you progress up the scale similar to income tax allowances. On the
downside, higher value properties will be major losers and after April in Scotland only any property over
£250,000 will attract a 10% band rate as opposed to the current rate of 5% which will continue to apply
over the border.
In Scotland, the level at which you will be paying more has now reduced from the cross
over point as announced at the time of the Scottish Government’s announcement
from about £335,000 to £253,000 and the post April comparison of the 5% rate for
the rest of the UK to 10% in Scotland flags up a significant extra cost to buying in
Scotland above that level.
Here in the Scottish Borders there are a significant number of buyers who move here from down south and
if they are discouraged from buying on our side of the Tweed we risk losing the benefits of that inward
investment with knock on affects for building industry and the wider local economy.
While it might be an unusual time of year to commence marketing if your property is likely to be in the
higher price bracket it would be wise to consider marketing early in the hope you attract a New Year buyer
keen to avoid extra costs. It’s never too early to market your property and both sellers and buyers should
act now to beat budget increases.

CHRISTMAS IS HERE
Great it is that time of year again; I must admit I love Christmas it is so good to
have all your family together for a wee while. Well normally I spend each
Christmas addition telling all you lovely fellow dog owners about the perils of
our festive period on their tummies and your carpets, oh not forgetting the poor
vet who would love to put his or her feet up for the day without any call outs.
Guess what, I am not going to go on about those horrors this year. No mentioning
the poor wee dog that ate the glass or plastic bauble off the Christmas tree or the
one who opened the wrapped box of Chocolates then ate them packaging, foil and
all. No, I’m not going there because you will all think I am a “meanie” who
doesn’t treat her dogs to a wee bit extra at Santa time. Someone who doesn’t hide,
“so they won’t see their pressie and spoil the surprise”, well yes I do, I am as bad
as the rest of the dog loving population.
So I will not go on about giving them way to much extra turkey with a couple of
roast spuds, a kilted sausage or maybe two! Oh and don’t forget the mash and
gravy. What is really odd, it’s eaten with so much gusto and looks lovely for them
BUT when it is ejected with as much gusto from the rear end it doesn’t look like
the lovely dinner they enjoyed only a few hours earlier and the smell is definitely
different. The one word of warning I will give this year, which a few of the more
greedy naughty breeds have fallen foul of, oh and they will often be the bin rakers
is, PLEASE, PLEASE make sure you dispose of the yummy smelling tin foil so
Fido cannot get hold of it and eat the lot, it makes them REALLY, REALLY sick.
Well, see I haven’t gone on at you all or bent your ears trying to give everyone,
Fido included, a peaceful and calm Christmas and New Year. On that note
remember, when the cooking, washing and playing “mine-host” gets too much,
just think how lovely it will be to get everyone out on a super walk which Fido
will enjoy. The added bonus of an extra Christmas present, “a fun walk2”, with
the most important people in their world! When you get back kids and dog will
be worn out and just want to sleep while you relax.
Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year to all my 2 and 4 legged friends, I look
forward to seeing you all next year.
Have fun!

On behalf of the Broomlands Primary School Parent Council I would
like to thank everyone who has supported us in 2014 and everyone
who attended, or was involved in some way or another in making our
Annual Christmas Fair on Friday 28th November 2014 a huge success.
Our small team worked very hard again to make it a successful event,
hopefully providing something of interest for all of our many visitors
Broomlands
& supportersPrimary
we hadSchool
on the night.
With you
We received many donations for our Christmas Raffle & Stalls from Parents, Supporters
and Businesses from within and around the Kelso area as well as further afield, far too
many to mention individually, but every single one was very much appreciated by the
Parent Council, the School and all the Pupils, especially in these difficult economic times.
Our Christmas Fair is one of our main fundraising events which help us get those “extra”
things for the benefit of the children; however, its success can only be achieved by the help
and generosity of our numerous supporters and helpers.
Please may I wish all our pupils, parents and carers, supporters, and all Kelso Life readers a
Happy New Year.

Broomlands Primary School Parent Council

The Provost Report
I hope you had a good Christmas, and New Year. It has been one year since we set up a Facebook
page, to allow you the people of Kelso to see what is going on within Kelso and to have a view on
what is going on. I think it has been good and it will get better with your help.
I know we keep pushing but as a community I feel it is important to help each other, and look after
our older residents to see that they are OK . You can make things easier for them by: 
Clearing snow from pathways of people who are unable to do it themselves

Helping with shopping during severe weather to those most in need

By doing anything you can to help.

Just going to the door of your neighbour or an older person who lives in your street may be
all the help they need.

Please ensure all your private property including garages and sheds is secured - keep an eye
on your neighbours - not just to gossip - but to keep them safe - there is a lot of bad
behaviour in our midst just now - Think Safe please.
Theft of Sound Equipment
Police are appealing for witnesses or information following a break in at Kelso North Church. It happened between
Monday night 24th November and the morning of 30th November 2014. If anyone has any information please contact
the police on 101 or Kelso North or ourselves.
Our Facebook posts show that some locals are concerned about recent Criminal activity in this area. The Borders are
still probably one of the safest, and friendliest places in the UK which is why we are all a wee bit taken aback by recent
events. If anyone has concerns about Personal or Property Safety and Security, contact Crime Prevention Officer for
advice on the Police Scotland 101 non-emergency number. There is also a number from AGE SCOTLAND - Silver Line
Scotland: 0800 4 70 80 90 where you can get equally good advice .Remember that crime is actually quite rare here.
In relation to these activities - if we look after each other, these people will never win!
There is an ongoing assessment on the town centre. We will meet up with SBC Officers to put right some small points,
like Disabled Parking among other things. We have asked the Police to keep an eye on the parking in the town centre
as well as in some other areas.
I am around the town most days as are most of your Community Councillors. If you have a question please stop us and
ask. If we cannot give you an answer we will find out for you and let you know. Community Councillors are volunteers
and get no payment whatsoever and no expenses. They are your way in to SBC and other things which are going on
within the community. We are always looking for new people to come on to the Community Council. To qualify you
must be 18 or over, live in Kelso and registered to vote so if you think you could give up some of your time to help in
the community please let me know. It would be really good to see some younger people.
One hundred years ago this yea, 2015, men from Kelso who were members of the local TA Battalion 4th Battalion
Kings Own Scottish Borderer were sent to Gallipoli. On the 12th July 1915 the Battalion were sent forward to take the
trenches in front of them. On that day 4th Battalion lost 18 officers and 535 soldiers in 20 minutes. This was the
biggest loss of life in the Borders since Flodden. 41 were from Kelso . There was never a Memorial put up but I hope
to put this right this right this year with your help. If you would like to donate to the Gallipoli memorial fund you can
hand it in or send it to Shirley at Kelso Hospital . I have also written a book which I have put on DVD format so can be
read on your computer, Tablet or TV. It is on sale in Seasons Roxburgh Street, or by post from me. The cost is a
donation of £5.00 all of which I will be giving to Kelso High School the help offset the cost of the Battle Field Trip which
S3 go on. If you would like to make a donation to this again send it to me, Shirley or Seasons tell them it’s for the High
School Fund. Thank you.
If anyone has a question they wish to put, to SBC Councillors please send it to me or any member of the Community
Council and they will bring it up on your behalf, or you are welcome to attend any of our meetings, which is the
second Tuesday of the month.

Rory Sutherland
During Edinburgh Rugby’s recent Blitz Day – when the squad visited schools throughout
the region – prop Rory Sutherland joined fellow Borderer Ross Ford in a visit to Kelso
High School, fresh from scoring his debut try for the club just over 24 hours earlier.
It’s been quite a season for Melrose-born Sutherland, who joined the club over the
summer as a BT Sport Scottish Rugby Academy player and who already has seven caps
under his belt.
The former Trinity Primary and Hawick High School pupil came through the ranks with
his hometown club and school sides before representing the Borders and Scotland at
under-17 and under-18 in the back-row.
He switched to loose-head prop during his first season of senior
rugby at Hawick RFC and, after a season with Biggar, caught the
attention of RBS Premiership runners-up and Border League
winners Gala RFC.
Under the tutelage of head coach George Graham, the dynamic
6ft, 110kg 22-year-old was a mainstay in one of the most
imposing packs of the country’s top domestic division, and
subsequently earned selection for Scotland Club XV earlier this
year prior to joining Edinburgh.
After making a first appearance against Leicester Tigers in
August’s pre-season friendly at The Greenyards, Sutherland has
cemented his place in the 23 sooner than anticipated. This was
initially due to injury sustained by Allan Dell during the league
match away to Leinster plus Alasdair Dickinson being away on
international duty during the autumn viagogo Tests
– however, he seized the opportunity with both
hands and hasn’t looked back.
He said: “When I arrived at the club in the
summer I just tried to get as good a preseason under my belt as I could. Then I put
pressure on the other props in the squad for
a place.
“Really, I didn’t think I would get as much
game time as I have had to date,” he
admitted, “but now I need to kick on and
perform consistently.”
That consistency led to the try against
London Welsh in the European Rugby
Challenge Cup on 7 December at BT
Murrayfield, one of three scores from the
front row in the 25-13 win – and surely one
of many more to come.

KELSO ORCHARD TENNIS CLUB - a charity registered in Scotland, Scottish charity number SC034005
The Club Awards Dinner was held in the Cobbles Inn on Saturday 22nd November where everyone enjoyed the
excellent food, good company and absolutely superb tennis jokes!!
Our high performance Special Olympians Lauren Waddell and Lucy Porteous were kind enough to bring along their
2014 medals for everyone to see.

Laing Trophy Mens Doubles – Lee Brown and Nik Stingl
The Richie Allan Shield Mens Singles has still to be played.

The Annual Xmas Tournament was held on Sunday 7th December with a great turnout, with 25 members braving the
cold. Everyone wore something chrismassy (a couple of snowman, Santa and his elf even made an appearance!) Lots
of fun games were played in teams and food was enjoyed by all. The results were as follows: 1st - Jane's Jingle Bells,
2nd - Kate's Christmas Crackers, 3rd - Maggie's Mince Pies, 4th - Lee's Little Helpers.
Please note that the indoor tennis has currently ceased at Edenside Primary School due to the space being required for
the Christmas tree and decorations. Lesley will let you know when this will recommence. All other arranged tennis
will continue outdoors –weather permitting apart from the Xmas and new Year break.
KELSO ANGLING ASSOCIATION - There was a good attendance at the AGM held on Wednesday 10th December.
The main item to note is an increase in membership prices. Trout membership increases from £25 to £30, OAP
membership from £5 to £10, youth membership stays at £5 and juniors remain free. The salmon permit increases by
£10 tor both town & country members. There are corresponding increases for visitor permits.
Salmon returns are now in showing a 45% increase on last year’s admittedly low returns. 119 salmon and 15 sea trout
were caught this year. The heaviest salmon, of 22 lbs, was caught by Bill (Wish) Cockburn.
The association would welcome applications for membership from anglers new to the area or to local residents wishing
to take up what is an excellent recreational sport. Application forms are available from Tweedside Tackle and Orvis.
The issue of Salmon Permits day will take place on Sunday 25th January from 2pm to 4pm in the British Legion.
Finally may I wish all our members a happy new year and a wish for tight lines in 2015.
Tight Lines!

A much improved series of performances has put a spring in the step of the Kelso players
and supporters alike. A couple of wins in the league over Jed-Forest and Peebles with a
narrow defeat to Selkirk gained a total of 9 league points to keep us ahead of relegationthreatened rivals Jed and Biggar and we have also closed the gap on the surprise packet that
is Marr. A narrow defeat to Gala in the Booker Border League also showed what we are
capable of doing. As I write, we have games against Biggar and Hillhead/ Jordanhill before
Christmas and our third round cup match against Musselburgh is due on January 3rd. That is
an interesting encounter as our visitors then are riding pretty high in their league and they did
a serious number on Peebles in the previous round.
We still have injury problems with some players being out for several weeks but, as we
approach the turn of the year, we can only hope that their return in imminent. The team
seems to be settling in well with the new coaching team of Gary Holborn and Andrew Skeen.
Ewan Ford is also helping with warm ups and conditioning. It must be extra hard for the
coaches as they are both player/coaches. When did Kelso last kick 2 drop goals in the same
match, as Andrew Skeen did against Peebles?
The seconds continue to train hard but often for no game with Peebles being the most
recent team to concede a match to us. That was a surprise as they are league leaders and
unbeaten. Thankfully, some of the seconds have been invited to step up to the plate and
perform for the first fifteen.
The Quins have had a good month as well and have moved up to 4th place in the semi junior
league. A top 4 finish to the league is still a realistic target for the Quins and, with that, will
come the chance to play National cup rugby.
Mini and Midi continue to go well with the school teams competing very well at the younger
age groups, reaching the semi finals of the Regional Schools cup at under 16 level, although
they lost their recent match in this competition. Regular victories have been recorded against
other Border schools and a recent win over Stirling County at S2 level gave a good guide to
their true level as Stirling are regularly successful at age group rugby.
The Minis are approaching the winter shut down and with it their Christmas party which will
be a quiet affair especially if all 112 registered players turn up!
It is planned to run several fund raisers during the season including the reintroduction of
the Club Ball to be held on Saturday 17th January. Tickets for that are still available but as I
write the Christmas Lunch has been sold out.
By the time you read this, 6 Nations International tickets will probably have been
distributed. The French game has been extremely popular and a few wealthy members will be
heading for Twickenham. £85 for a ticket and that is not even in the Royal Box! Members just
don’t seem to be interested in the games at Murrayfield. As we did well in the November
tests, this is a surprise! I am sure there will still be tickets available for the Italy game,
possibly the Wales game but, with the Ireland game being a possible Grand Slam or
Championship decider at the end of March, I doubt if these tickets will not be snapped up
when they go on public release.
If you managed to get tickets for the World Cup in England next autumn, I congratulate
you. They seem to be as rare as hen’s teeth. The dearest ticket for the competition is only
£715 for the final!
We launched our new website around 3 years ago and you may check up on what is going
on by visiting www.kelsorfc.co.uk . Our thanks go to Ian Anderson for setting this up for us.
Michael Lyall is the webmaster. [email protected] will catch up with him if you
want to get anything related to the club put up on the website.
The clubrooms have been busy with functions but it is never too late to book the premises.
Both upstairs and downstairs may be booked as well as the kitchen. Any members who wish
to hold an event in the clubrooms should arrange a booking through Douglas Bell, the Club
Steward. In some cases, we may have to apply for an extension to our license depending on
how many members are at an event. We do let the clubrooms out for regular events like line
dancing, Zumba dancing, Bingo and University of the 3rd Age.
The Committee and Players of the club are grateful for your support in 2014 and trust that
you have an enjoyable festive period and we look forward to seeing you in the New Year.
