Jill had this to say on winning Resident of the Month and life in general at Tanner's Close:

Winning resident of the month was a big surprise to me, I really didn’t expect it. It was given to me for running the line dancing and the exercise class which happens after. The other residents enjoy taking part in both, it keeps you moving and it’s a good time to catch up with friends. Lately I’ve just been going to coffee morning, choir and a seniors social club in Erdington. I’m looking forward to Christmas too, it should be a nice time with family. I’ve been at Tanner’s Close for nearly ten years now and before that I was at Quinton for two years. It’s very friendly here and every gets on, we all look out for each other whenever it’s needed, so that’s nice to know. We also take part in activities together, they’re usually run by Marion, the Scheme Manager, she’s very kind and looks after everyone here.
