The hall was built in 1926 by Hitch & Co, on land leased from the Buxton family at a peppercorn rent and with subscriptions from people in the village. The Hall continues to be leased from the Buxtons to this day.​It was officially opened on 24th September 1926. The hall was run by a management committee made up of members from the organisations using the hall. The Trustees were the Church Wardens. In the early days there was a small library charging a penny per volume for 14 days. The hall was used by The British Legion, The Women’s Institute, a Men’s club and the Cubs. Whist Drives and dances were held. In 1939 the hall was used as a schoolroom for children evacuated from London. In 1987 an extension was constructed, which included improved toilets and disabled facilities. Nowadays the hall is used for: Wareside Entertainers who perform plays, pantomimes and variety shows; Taekwondo; Pilates; Keep Fit; Yoga; Dance; Parish Council meetings; Elections; Weddings and Birthday parties for a range of ages (although the hall is not suitable for teenage parties). The committee members are Kay Kerr, Judith King, Douglas Cook, Ann Bartlett and Debbie Rudgley; who meet once a month. New members would be most welcome.
