Ringwood Historical Society

By February 28, 2006No Comments

Tonight I attended a Ringwood Historical Society meeting focused on the life of former Councillor Ben Hubbard, a well respected councillor from the City of Ringwood, and the inspiration behind the name of BJ Hubbard Reserve in Ringwood North.

It was fascinating to hear about the life of Ben Hubbard and his boundless passion for the community and his continued drive to ensure openness and accountability within the former Ringwood Council.

Ringwood has an amazing history and the passion Cr. Hubbard displayed is still visible today. Cr. Ben Hubbard was largely responsible for preserving the green leafy environment we still enjoy to this day in Ringwood, while also boosting our commercial capabilities through the creation of Eastland.
