Village stalwarts Vernon Place and Ruth Diver were on hand to cut the ribbon as the centre was formally opened to the public.
A celebration followed and an evening of music and entertainment was hosted to put the new centre through its paces.
The centre is the result of a decade of collaboration between Isleham Parish Council and Isleham Community Association, and is already host to cub and scout groups, mother and toddler meetings and fitness classes.
The Beeches was built by CJ Murfitt, of Soham, is owned by Isleham Parish Council and is run under lease by Isleham Community Association, a charitable trust.
