Your pictures: Nine beautiful photographs by Hartlepool Mail readers
Today marks the first day of spring, so we've taken a look back at the first part of the year.
And what a few months it has been! It seemed the perfect time to take a moment of calm and remember some of the great photographs we have been sent by you, the Mail readers. We change the Facebook cover picture on the Hartlepool Mail every week, and here is a re-cap of some of our favourite images. If you have a picture to share, you can email [email protected] or visit us on Facebook or Twitter @HPoolMail.
