Kenny and Marlene Pearson

A LOVING couple cruised to the Aegean Sea and showed off their pride for their hometown.

Kenny Pearson, 74, and wife, Marlene, 73, enjoyed stop-offs in Lesbos, Mykonos and Rhodes, in Greece, and Kusadasi, Marmaris and Istanbul, in Turkey.

And during their brief stay in the Turkish capital, the couple, who live in Bamburgh Court, in the Clavering area of Hartlepool, took the opportunity to spread the word about the town.

Kenny and Marlene took along a copy of the Mail’s Proud to be a Poolie poster and posed together for a photograph in the sunshine.
