Terry’s special honour

By Kirra Livingstone

LANDSBOROUGH Hotel owner, Terry Morrow, was inducted as a life member by the Queensland Hotel Association on June 3, for his significant involvement in hotels across SEQ.
Terry has owned the Landsborough Hotel for 25 years, and has owned four pubs throughout the years, working at another six or seven establishments before owning his first pub.
He also served on the board of the Queensland Hotel Association for 25 years before this honour.
Terry said although he was proud of the achievement, he insisted he wouldn’t have been recognised without the association’s years of support. “I was quite shellshocked and I’m in awe. The industry association has been so good to me, it’s given me the tools to help run businesses and in doing so has given me the privilege of employing people, and that to me is what it’s all about,” he said.
Mr Morrow also made special mention of his wife Lyn, and his staff, particularly his long term staff for making Landsborough Hotel a welcoming, community oriented venue.
“The staff are like family, without them I’ve got nothing and without my wife Lyn, we wouldn’t be here,” he said.
