Watton residents are being urged to support a £3m youth scheme which could turn the town into a hub of sports and leisure excellence.
Local businessmen Paul Adcock and Julian Horn are working hard to get Project Rainbow off the ground to create a drop-in centre for young people as well as indoor facilities and a park on fields near Watton Sports Centre.
They are trying to get charity status for the project and also apply for cash from the government.
And to do this, they are asking local people to write as many letters of support which would back their case.

Watton town councillors offered a major boost, granting £20,000 to help with the opening of the drop-in centre in Harvey Street.
Mr Adcock said: “Notwithstanding the donation from the town council, already over £5500 has come from organisations and individuals, but there is still a long way to go. We would like to know we still have the support of the town in this undertaking and would like to have letters of support to put forward to the potential funders as evidence of support.”
