History of the Hall

In 1968 when the Taradale Borough Council amalgamated with the Napier City Council, the City Council took responsibility for the running of the town hall. In 1982, the Council approached the Taradale Rotary Club with the proposition that the Club take over the administration of the building and if possible, run it at a profit and so benefit the club's funds. This proposition was agreed to on a trial basis, and in April 1983, Arthur Stafford became the supervisor of the Town Hall. Extensive remodelling and refurbishing of the lower hall were completed by July 1992. The upper lounge was extensively refurbished in early 1996. In 2020, the Rotary Club handed the administration back to the Council who are now the custodian of the hall.
