Part 1 | Report ⭱

Summary ⭱

The 1st Ripley group arranged a Zoom meeting with Jungle Jo for all sections.

You can read about her here Jungle Jo and here Facebook.

She has a room in her house which is given over to jungle critters of the kind you might find on "I'm a Celebrity – Get Me Out of Here".

She picks each of them up and shows them close to the camera and tells you some interesting information about them.

She also answers your questions about them.

Questions were typed in on the group chat and read out by the leaders (her hands were too full of critters to read the questions).

Lots of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts attended.
