Local dad, Grant Maryborough (56) hasn’t had an alcoholic drink in a licensed venue since 2012.
In the four years since then, every bit of socialising or unwinding has taken place on top of his deck. A slatted timber attachment to his post-war Queenslander style house.
“It’s all you could want, mate” he says.
“We even extended the corrugated iron roof so we can drink out here in the summer storms”.
With his youngest sons 21st taking place in a nearby pub. Grant doesn’t think he’ll stick around much longer than the speeches.
“I think I’ll peel off with a couple of his mates parents and hit the deck”
“If those kids have half a brains they’ll come and join us later”
