Thousands could be spent to fix a sports field car park that becomes “potentially dangerous” in bad weather.

Thornborough Parish Council is seeking £33,170 from the Buckingham and Villages Community Board to resurface the parking area at the Sir Harry Moore Sports Field and Pavilion.

The parish said the area becomes “slippery and potentially dangerous” in wet weather.

The money will be drawn from a £413,018 pot.

“The parish are therefore proposing to remedy this by resurfacing of the parking area at the pavilion.”
