Meet our Activities Coordinator, Jill Harris

I previously managed a day centre for the elderly for 25 years. I love my role as Activities Coordinator; it is a job I very much enjoy, as every day is different. My aim is to organise a fun-packed range of activities for everyone to participate in. We have daily activities, trips on our minibus and monthly events, including cheese & wine, fish & chip suppers and pamper sessions. We have wonderful residents who make me smile & laugh every day.

Activities at The Spires

Activities are an integral part of life at our care home. We want to ensure that the people we support have as much fun as possible during their time with us, so it’s important that our activities programme is created with the interests of residents in mind. Our skilled Activities Coordinators bring a certain uniqueness to the home that can’t be found anywhere else, and which is reflected in the activities they organise.

A History of Lichfield

John Gallagher from Co-op's head office came in as a volunteer and spent time with residents sharing stories and memories of the history of Lichfield. John brought along his laptop and showed off lots of photographs and memorabilia to spark conversation.

Christmas Creations

The Spires has sponsored a Christmas tree for charity at Lichfield Cathedral. Residents, with the help of volunteers, have been making the decorations for the tree, and some residents braved the cold weather to go to decorate the tree. 

There are many trees that will be decorated by local groups and businesses, and these will be open for the local community to view and place their votes for the best over the coming few weeks leading up to Christmas. 

We decided to go for bright and cheerful, with many colours and lots of glitter & sparkle.

Community Engagement

Beverley Cole, one of our Senior Carers, manned our stall at a local careers exhibition event. There were a lot of visitors and Beverley was able to answer questions about our home and the the roles we are recruiting for.

Remembrance Service

We held a remembrance service on 8th November in honour of all of those who have fallen in the line of duty, and invited residents, families and members of the British Legion. 

The event was wonderful; the standard bearer from the British Legion gave us readings, and our General Manager, Fran, read ‘In Flanders Fields’. Fran, along with 2 residents, placed the British Legion wreath, and 3 sixth form pupils then performed 2 songs for us, which were very moving. Marcin, our Chef, then treated us all to some port and sherry, along with some homemade truffles.
