This summer, Access Community Trust and Sams Café are celebrating all things Lowestoft with a special fishing display.

And local residents are being asked to help recreate scenes from the famous Lowestoft fish markets ahead of the launch at the end of this month.

A spokesman from Access Community Trust said: 'Do you have any memorabilia of those heydays when Lowestoft ruled the world in fishing?

'Come along and relive those memories of days gone by. You never know, you might get to meet a couple of Scottish fisher girls and a shanty chorus.'

The display will be on show at Sams Café in Bevan Street East, Lowestoft, from Sunday, July 30 to Monday, September 4.
