TWO teenagers fed up with a lack of facilities for young people in Witchford are looking for help to build a £500,000 youth facility in the village.
We reported in October last year how friends Josh Oddi, 14, and Steven Shipp, 16, were planning to put the facility in place at Witchford Villlage College.
They hope to build an internet cafe, youth offices and a band rehearsal venue.
It's been a busy nine months for the boys.

The boys need their plans to be approved by Witchford Village College's Planning Committee and they expect to present them in three to four months' time.

Josh said: "It's been a bit stop-start lately so we really want to move things forward. Our immediate priority now is to set up a committee and we especially need a treasurer and secretary. We would also really appreciate some advice from with experience of being involved in projects like this
"We would be grateful for help from anyone but we really need some adults to get involved because no bank or business is going to say, 'here's 10 grand' to a couple of teenagers."
