A HARTLEPOOL mum used a family visit to show how proud she is of her town.

Jean Horsley, from Hartlepool, visited her son Paul and daughter-in-law Nanette in Canada and used the occasion to join in the Mail’s Proud to be a Poolie campaign.

Headlander Jean was pictured at Vermillion Lakes in Banff National Park, Lake Louise in Banff National Park with Victoria Glacier in the background and at Morley Church in Morleyville, Alberta.

Our thanks go to Jean and her family for backing our Poolie campaign.
