Lichfield's Mayor, Councillor Deborah Baker, and Dr Steve Baker visited The Spires care home in the cathedral city.

They made a banner saying 'hello everyone', and waved and shouted hello to everyone in the home.

Residents in the care home

Residents and team members came to the windows and others came to the entrance area and stood, from a safe distance, so they could say hello and thank them for coming.

Some of the residents sang a song from the film Sister Act and followed this with We’ll Meet Again which everyone joined in with.

Amy Doyle, general manager of The Spires said: "We did request the sun to be shining but sadly they had to stand in the rain which they did with smiles.

"Some of our residents were in the middle of choir practice, they came out to the entrance to sing.

"The sign they made 'hello everyone' was a lovely touch."
