Best mates love living in valley

THESE two are Grafton-born-and-bred tradies.

Nick Brotherson and Bri Hourigan are also the best of mates.

Both went to primary and high school together in Grafton and now one is a plumber and the other a builder.

While Nick hasn’t travelled overseas yet, Bri has travelled all through Europe and loved it.

But both men agreed you couldn’t get a better place in the world to live than Grafton.

“The people are so friendly and kind to each other, and that is what makes this place so special,” Nick said.

Both men love their fishing and reckon the Clarence River is the best river to throw in a line.

“We love to go fishing offshore, but we also like to go down to Yamba.

"There is plenty of fish down there,” Bri said.

He also holidays at Yamba every Christmas.

The guys said they had lots of mates in Yamba and they loved to catch up with them for a beer every now and again.
