The building has now found a new meaning and purpose for the twenty-first century as The Centre. It now meets a wide variety of educational, recreational and social needs- and it is firmly rooted in the local community, just as it has always been. It has been transformed through extensive restoration and improvement - it is warm and comfortable, light and bright, practical and flexible, cheerful and welcoming to all. The current trustees are delighted that they have been able to deal with many of those concerns about the shortcomings of the building which school inspectors highlighted over the decades. The Centre is a listed building and now aims to be a thriving centre for the community, as well as continuing to house the Old School community cafe (formerly Just Traid cafe and fair trade shop) established here by Kathleen Fleming in the 1990's. In June 2011 a day of celebration was held as an official reopening of the building post restoration. The final teacher here when the building closed in 1972, Mary Evans, cut the ribbon.
