My dear friend, Philip Rubinstein 1934–2021

I first met Phil on a rain-soaked day outside my house in Brunswick Terrace, Mullum. It was an accidental encounter, but we soon got stuck into a conversation about the parlous state of Australian universities.

Donning the gloves, armed with rubbish bags and smothered in insect repellent a group of 15 people participated in the annual Clean Up Australia Day in Bruns, some on land around the boat harbour precinct and others aboard ‘Reflections’, the river cruise boat operating on the Brunswick River.

For five years now Simon and Lorraine Freeden have willingly organised this outing, providing their boat, their time and even the morning tea.

Your generosity, commitment and passion are sincerely appreciated.

Linda Hibbard, Brunswick Heads
