The Hall

History

The building was formerly the National School. It was opened in 1865 on a site given by John Bowes.  The building was totally refurbished through the Sure Start funding scheme and was reopened as the Evenwood Randolph Centre incorporating a Sure Start Children’s Centre in 2005. In 2014 the building, as a place for the community, was under threat due to the County Council needing to make cuts.  Evenwood and Barony Council took the courageous step to form a separate Trust to take on the future responsibility of the building.

On the 4 April 2016, the building was taken over by the Randolph Community Centre Foundation Trust with the aim to develop a community hub available to all.  The building was rebranded as The Randolph Community Centre
