Full house for McClymonts' Grafton show

THE McClymonts played to a full house at the Grafton Saraton Theatre on Friday night, the presentation of their Clarence Valley Ambassador medallions by Mayor Richie Williamson during the concert culminating in another career highlight for Clarence-raised siblings Brooke, Sam and Mollie.

"It's so nice. We feel special every time we come home. Everyone's really lovely, they come out to the show and support us and this amazing theatre.

"The (Clarence Valley's) ambassador award has topped it off. We hope we do them proud," Sam said.

The girls said they were honoured to be named ambassadors and be in the same company with people like Troy Cassar Daley.

"Troy's someone we've always looked up to and now we're good friends. He tweeted us to say have a good show tonight," Brooke said.

While this visit was a fleeting one (their 10 Years of Hits tour took them to Newcastle the following night), they said they did catch up with their dad Peter 'Porkchop' on Friday. "I basically said here's your granddaughter (three-year-old Tiggy with husband Adam Eckersley). Bye!," Brooke laughed.

"He had a silverside sandwich waiting though. It was a quick visit this time," Sam said.
