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 Infamous Lemon Drizzle Cake!

If you saw Esther Rantzens report on The One Show you may have noticed that she said at the end of the film, "I think it's time for lemon drizzle cake,"
I have always made cake for our meetings from the very beginning, as it was "Tea and Cake For The Grandchildren," that got the group up and running, well I made a lemon drizzle cake for the meeting featured.
When I was interviewed by Geraldine on North Manchester radio, she asked for the recipe to put on the Face Book page, and it has become the infamous lemon drizzle cake.
Here is a photo of Geraldine's (Grandparents Support) amazing finished  masterpiece, does it mean I need to ice fancy things on the top  from now on?
Also need to mention that Lyns fruit cake also featured!!!!!
