Paul Jeffries, a member of the Green Tourism board, said the centre was an obvious hub of the local community and the award was richly deserved."
The Southville Centre is currently seeking funding to further improve the energy efficiency of the Grade II listed Victorian building.
An eco-celebration is planned for next June when local residents will be invited to join in with some environmentally friendly activities.
The Southville Centre is a community venue which houses a nursery, preschool, out-of-school provision, an older people's club, and other facilities.
