Our latest JoJo store opened its doors in Jersey last week, and we’re so excited to be there! We caught up with Jersey JoJo store manager Karen to find out her favourite things to do in this beautiful island. Don’t forget you can find all the store details here. We hope to see you soon!

Again, I love to go to the beach in my Campervan who is called Valerie and take in the rays and look out to sea and watch the surfers.
Can you recommend any play groups or events for children?
There are various playgroups, mainly held in community centres or church halls. Tamba Park seems to be the new hit in Jersey, fabulous for all ages with plenty to do and great food. Many pubs now have large soft play areas and small playgrounds.

The Mums in Jersey Facebook page is a great way to meet new mums and dads and to find the nearest playgroups and meetings.

We have Help a Jersey Child, Waitrose help 9 Jersey Charities per month within their stores. They issue green coins and customers choose which organisation they place their coin into, which is great for the local community to feel involved.
