THE pavilion at March Town Cricket Club is set for a revamp as part of a country-wide initiative called NatWest CricketForce.

The English Cricket Board (ECB) initiative sees members, volunteers and local businesses pitch in to maintain the local cricket club.

March’s ground will get a spring clean on Saturday March 26. Jobs on the day will include renovating the scorebox, cleaning the pavilion, repairing fences and organising all the cricket kit.

All helpers will receive a free NatWest CricketForce t-shirt and a free fish and chip lunch.
