THE French connection is helping to spread the word about Hartlepool.
Pals Jean Odgers and Veronica Burgon are pictured in Paris during a recent trip and have sent us this picture of them having a great time seeing the sights such as the Eiffel Tower.
But they remembered to take a copy of the Hartlepool Mail Proud To Be A Poolie poster with them to spread the word about their home town.
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 a copy. 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 email the newswdesk
