Thanks to the owners of Augusta’s Blue Ocean Fish & Chips the town has a new mascot, Bronzie the Shark.
Making his debut on the busy main street of the town over the Easter long weekend, Bronzie was a hit with children and adults of all ages.
“It was great, we had people running from all over to come and take a selfie with Bronzie, and to give him a high five,” said Linda Harris, owner of the fish and chip store.
“We thought it was a great opportunity to have Bronzie make his first appearance when town was so packed and there were lots of people out and about in the sunshine.”
Ms Harris said Bronzie would make regular appearances at community events around the Augusta area in the future.
“Events like the Augusta River Festival will be perfect for Bronzie, he’s very excited to meet everyone and have his picture taken!”
