Jill Cureton and Rita Hinton, members of the original steering committee, were praised for their hard work in setting up the centre.
Irene Threasher, from WCA, said: "The community centre has brought so much life into our village, particularly for people who are retired and for the young ones.
"It covers all generations and we have markets and book sales. It's a centre for activities and clubs and very well used."
