After 32 years at law firm Dawes and Vary, local lawyer Stephen Bubb say's Kyabram will always be home for his family.May 7, 2014 3:30am
Kyabram lawyer Stephen Bubb has taken up a position with the Law Institute of Victoria after 32 years, but he will always keep close ties with the town.
Mr Bubb will have a career change from private practice to working for the peak body of lawyers in Victoria.
During his time in Kyabram, he married local girl Helen Bell and had three children — Lachlan, 21, Jane, 23, and Andrew, 26.
He also helped Kyabram Cricket Club achieve seven premierships and played footy for the Kyabram.
Mr Bubb said that while a lot had changed about the town, it had essentially stayed the same.
‘‘In the town things have changed, but the fabric and core of the community hasn’t changed. It’s a very caring and welcoming community made up of lots of great people,’’ he said.
Mr Bubb said Kyabram was the perfect place to raise his family and that country life gave them all so much.
‘‘You couldn’t get a better place to bring up your kids. I was always happy that if the kids fell off their bike someone would bring them home. They grew up in a community where they could walk or ride to cricket or footy or school and I felt they were in a safe environment,’’ Mr Bubb said.
Ms Bell is also a stalwart in the community, having grown up in the town.
