Dozens of cricket fans lent a hand at March Town and Wisbech Town’s bases as part of NatWest’s CricketForce Day on April 1.

Designed to bring clubs and their local communities together, CricketForce Day saw volunteers take on tasks such as painting and cleaning to help prepare their clubs for the start of the cricketing season, which begins this weekend.

March, who secured promotion to the Tucker Gardner Division One last season, take on Long Sutton in a friendly, while Wisbech face Ramsey.
