A project to create a youth caf� has been put forward as one of five schemes across Suffolk.
After speaking to youngsters in the town, PCSO Ailsa McNamara has submitted a bid for funding through the criminal justice service and Community Cash Back.
She said: 'I was speaking to a lot of young people on the streets of Lowestoft and they were saying they had nothing to do.

PCSO McNamara this week called on people to support to the project.
She said: 'If we do get the go-ahead, hopefully the project will be up-and-running in January 2010, and the funding will be for a year if all goes well.'
