Rowlands – Selkirk Dry Bar Association

Charity registered in Scotland SC025811

Rowland’s – Selkirk Dry Bar Association is a youth café for the young people of Selkirk. Any young person from first year at high school until they are eighteen can become a member. Rowland’s is a young person drop in where young people can hang out in the café bar area, play pool, use the games consoles or access our computer suit in a safe environment supported by a team of adult volunteers.
The main aim of Rowland’s is to give young people a safe place to go, hang out with their friends in a safe environment , keeping young people off the streets and a diversion from risk taking activities.


Current opportunities

Do you have experience in window dressing or artistic flair? If so we would love to hear from you! We have 4 windows in Rowlands which require updating each month. Some of our windows will be themed with yearly events such as Common Ridings and Christmas as well as updating the community and young people on what's coming up and celebrating achievements. We estimate that this will take about 6 hours per month and we can supply lots of tea, biscuits and chat in exchange for your skills.
