All our projects
For years, there has been talk of the need for a Selkirk by-pass. SRC has consistently supported the campaign, lobbying our political representatives, and compiling a strong case in support.
After protracted negotiation with absentee owners, SRC has recently (June 2016) managed to acquire, on behalf of the people of Selkirk, the former fish shop at 5 Tower Street (5TS). Our vision is to provide a “community hub” right in the centre of town for use by community organisations for meetings, training, exhibitions etc.
SRC is currently supporting a group of (mainly) men to set up a "Selkirk Shed. We are currently in negotiation to lease an empty building in the town for use as a "shed".
1TS is a former empty shop, now owned and renovated by SRC, for use as by the community. It is mainly used as a pop-up shop or exhibition space, and can be booked by any organisation (commercial or charity).
The former Cross Keys pub in the Market Place, lay empty and boarded up for many years, and is now owned by SBC. Due to extensive dry rot, we are no longer able to operate this building as a community hub .... but we do have other plans ...
The Wind Energy Project aimed to produce renewable energy and provide new revenue to support Community Projects in Selkirk. However, this has now been abandoned, due to a number of issues.
The first YES Arts Festival took place in Selkirk and the valleys in September 2013. The next festival took place in September 2015. The YES Arts Festival is now a fully independent organisation, spun off from SRC.
