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.

The Perfect Father's Day?

It arrives every year in the Summer month of June,
When days are long, bright and full of flowers,
Its time to celebrate, to spend time to say 'I love you,'
A special day just for them, a card maybe tea in bed?
Soggy cornflakes, spilt milk, crumbs between the sheets,
Glitter from the card, appears to have got everywhere!
A family lunch, all together , a walk and laughs along the way.
A perfect world.

Sadly as we all know we don't live in a perfect world, to the thousands of Dads who will be just dreaming for the perfect world, dreaming for just one hug, one card from their children, I for one will be thinking of you. Willing you all, never to give up hope, hold your head up high, you are a Dad, an extraordinary person who does deserve to be  part of your children's lives, if you are dreaming of a perfect Father's Day, they are dreaming too.
