REVIVE Lake Cathie has a new mascot thanks to the efforts of the Hastings Men's Shed.

Hastings Men's Shed volunteer Alan Bruhn donated the work of art, a beautifully sculpted pelican, to Revive Lake Cathie and Alistair Flower from the Lake Cathie Tavern at the Lake Cathie Foreshore Reserve.

The pelican will be on show at the tavern.

"Our lake is at the heart of the Port Macquarie-Hastings and is no better demonstrated by this kind donation from one fabulous volunteer community group to another," Revive Lake Cathie president Danielle Maltman said.

Lake Cathie Tavern plans to kick off a competition to name the Revive Lake Cathie pelican in the coming weeks.
