The Alma Terrace Recreation Ground pavilion - Sir Arnold Grasp's survey team take a few measurements
Sir Arnold meets with some concerned locals to allay their fears
Six months on and the'few subtle improvements you'll barely notice' are complete
Sir Arnold advances to bowl the first ball in the inaugural match
Dribble the Doberman beats him to the wicket to make sure tradition is preserved while the 'Chinless Gentlemen' move into position
Back at the pavilion Lady Lavinia Grasp-Chinless stands ready with new Grasp Grail while the balconies and verandah creak 'neath the throng of enthusiasts
On Alma Terrace itself normal life comes to a halt as the populace crowd to see the show
A panoramic view of the great occasion before.....
....the flanneled rain dance produces its inevitable result !
