Some £20,000 of funds have been made available to fix issues at a community centre that were highlighted by a fire risk assessment at the building.
Tarporley Parish Council agreed to make the money available to the village facility after an investigation found it is causing a "moderate" risk to members.
According to a report by the Chester Chronicle, councillor Graham Lees, who is on the community centre management committee, stated that this means there is a "reasonable chance" a blaze in the building could lead to people being injured or even killed.
He said: "It's something that can't be ignored."
It is believed that close to £5,000 of work needs to be carried out in the next month as a result of the fire risk assessment.
The Scotsman recently reported that Whitburn Leisure Centre was "destroyed" in a blaze, with customers evacuated from the burning building due to emergency procedures.
