Wisbech Cricket Club has been treated to a make over thanks to a team of 30 volunteers as part of a national ground force event.
Volunteers from the club turned up for a day of restoring the ground ready for the 2019 cricket season.
Bob Burgess, chairman of the Wisbech Cricket Club, said: “Everyone soldiered on from 8am to 4pm and worked really hard. A huge thank you to everybody who attended.
“The day of action is part of a national programme in conjunction with Natwest. It’s really impressive to see what everyone achieved.
“The club looks very good and ready for the summer.”
