Spring cleaning hit March Town Cricket Club over the Easter weekend as the club held their annual ground force days.
An army of more than 40 volunteers headed out on both Good Friday and Easter Saturday to prepare the ground and pavilion for the start of the new season.
March's first home friendly comes on April 17 when the first team host Downham Stow but before that could happen, numerous jobs needed to be completed.
These included putting the plastic sheets onto the metal framed covers, preparing the double bay nets and sorting out the score box.
Dykes were cleared, debris around the ground was collected and the sight screens were washed down.
Spectator seats were repaired and varnished and the kit inventory completed.
Club secretary Les Mills said: "I would like to thank all the members who gave up their time to work, socially distanced over the Easter weekend.
