HARTLEPOOL’S very own Golden Girls showed off their pride in their home town during a recent Highland fling.
Rose Porritt, from Rawlings Grove, sent us this picture of her and her pals on a recent trip to Oban, on the west coast of Scotland.
The ladies from Hartlepool were happy to show off how much they love their town by displaying their Proud to be a Poolie poster in their hotel.
Our thanks go to the ladies 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 on to www.hartlepoolmail.co.uk
