THREE pals spread the Poolie word when they went on a tour of the heritage of the United States.
Hartlepool trio Winifred Harrington, Pat Harrison and Margaret Conroy visited West Potomac Park where they posed for a photograph next to the Franklin D Roosevelt memorial statue in Washington DC.
They remembered to take a copy of the Hartlepool Mail’s Proud To Be A Poolie poster with them, and helped to spread the word about their home town.
Winifred said: “We also visited the 9/11 memorial and the White House.”
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 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
