Bottle drive to repair sign at Herb Peppard Park

Children in Truro's East End are holding a bottle drive this week to repair a sign at Herb Peppard Park on Alice Street.

Pascal Atkin tells our newsroom Mr. Peppard's face was scratched off the sign with a rock.

The group, including around ten to twelve kids, is meeting around 3 p.m. Thursday and Friday to go around the area collecting bottles.

On Saturday, bottles can be dropped off at the park, and Atkin says John Ross & Sons will accept donations.

Atkin says people have been rallying through the East End Community Association, volunteering vehicles to help with the bottle drive and more.
