Hi everyone and welcome to Bristol Grandparents Support Group blog. Although we are Bristol based we have grandparents from all over the UK and beyond as members.

It is estimated that over one million children in the UK are denied contact with their grandparents due to family breakdown which may have been caused by divorce/separation, alcohol/drug dependency,domestic violence,bereavement or family feud.
Every child has the right to have contact with their grandparents
if they wish and unless proven unsafe for them to do so. To deny contact from a parent or grandparent has to become as socially unacceptable as drink driving.
I hope to keep you up to date with what is going on in BGSG and I shall continue to campaign for the rights of children to have a loving and meaningful relationship with both parents and their extended family. So please join in as good to hear your views, not just mine!
I also will support via Skype.
There is no membership fee to be part of Bristol Grandparents Support Group.
Esther Rantzen says, " To every grandparent, links of love can never be broken in our hearts."

Please contact during office hours.

I have removed names etc, just for the blog. Grandchildren's names are on the messages on the Christmas tree .

‘Dearest S and R, I will always love you and hold you close to my heart. I am your Nannie for ever.’

"We love you with all our hearts D and T" love Nana and Grampy xxxx

‘To my darling grandson W who I have missed every single day for the past four years.

Wishing you a happy 14th birthday on th December and a lovely Christmas.

I long to know what you look like and what you sound like and hope one day to catch a glimpse of you - as you live only two miles away.

And my wish is also for ALL grandparents who have to weather this daily grief.

With fondest love,
