A HOLIDAYING couple spread the word about their town thousands of miles away in sunnier climes.
Hartlepool couple Jim and Pauline Frostwick backed our Proud to be a Poolie campaign when they visited the Dominican Republic.
The couple, from the Hart Lane area of the town, enjoyed a holiday in the Caribbean country and also let the locals know how good their town is.
Our thanks go to them for backing our Poolie campaign.
Why not take your chance to show your passion about your town?
All we want you to do is pick up a copy of our new poster from the Hartlepool Mail reception or download it from our website at www.hartlepoolmail.co.uk It contains the slogan Proud To Be A Poolie.
Take it with you whenever you go on holiday or go away for a short break.
Have your photograph taken with the poster and send it to us so that we can publish it – and show that you have helped to spread the Hartlepool word.
Send your photos to the Mail newsdesk, Hartlepool Mail, New Clarence House, Wesley Square, Hartlepool, TS24 8BX, or log onto www.hartlepoolmail.co.uk
