A HARTLEPOOL man chose one of the most beautiful settings in the world to spread the message about his home town.

Scott Phillips headed to the Maldives for a sunshine break and took time to pose for a photograph with a copy of the Hartlepool Mail’s Proud To Be A Poolie poster.

Joining him for the photo at Kuredu Island was his 11-year-old daughter Katie.

Our thanks go to them for backing our Poolie campaign.

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.
