On Saturday 13th February the Mountain Lodge of Bombala held its first regular meeting in almost 12 months. The meeting was well attended with due regard for restrictions in place for the Covid 19 requirements. The main work for the night was the Raising of Bob Joseph, the Great Great Grandson of Hyam Joseph the foundation Senior Warden of the Lodge. He had been waiting for this moment since October 2019 thanks to the pandemic.
