A youth drop in centre for will open in Beccles to deter teenagers from being on the streets.
The café at the old ambulance station, on Blyburgate road will transform into a designated place for young people.
According to Beccles councillor Caroline Topping, the drop-in centre will allow young people aged 15 to 18 to relax without being watched by their parents.
'There is some anti-social behaviour [on the streets], but this is not about that - it is trying to give them some privacy.
'My parents were brought up in London and would go to the Ace Café. When I was younger - we would spend time at the Morling,' Mrs Topping said.
The space, which is sponsored by Sweeties as well as Tesco and supported by the Beccles Green's Party, will have a jukebox, tuck shop, pool table as well as table tennis.
It will open on Monday, March 4 from 6pm to 9pm.
