Organisers have confirmed the iconic Coca-Cola truck will be visiting Eastbourne this week after rumours the event had been cancelled emerged on social media.
The confusion started after a Facebook event page about the visit was suddenly deleted leading some to believe the event had been cancelled.
While it is unclear why the event page was deleted, organisers confirmed the truck will visit Terminus Road between 12pm and 8pm on Friday, December 18.
The visit comes after Eastbourne’s Chamber of Commerce successfully secured a visit from the truck.
Tim Cobb, president of the chamber, said, “We are delighted that the global brand of Coca- Cola has chosen Eastbourne as a stopping place for its Christmas truck tour on this special year.
“The team at the Eastbourne Chamber of Commerce worked tirelessly to get the truck to stop in.
“It is another incredible vote of confidence in the town, its community and the army of growing young people choosing to live and raise families in this wonderful part of the south coast.
“Eastbourne...it’s the Real Thing!”
