MARCH Town Cricket Club members and volunteers came together on Friday to renovate the club’s pavilion and ground ahead of the new season.
The club was taking part in Cricket-Force, a national ECB initiative sponsored by the National Westminister Bank.
Members and volunteers helped help to decorate the pavilion lounge and spring cleaned the kitchen.
The fencing was repaired, an inventory of the kit store was completed and lots of work completed on the outfield and dykes.
Fresh gravel was also spread around the car park.
All helpers received a free t-shirt and tea, coffee and beef burgers were served to keep energy levels high.
Club chairman Les Mills said: “Good Friday was a very cold day but it was great to see so many members and volunteers turn out to help prepare the club for the new cricket season.
