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.

Did you like your pressie?

So the Christmas pressie for L............. had been wrapped and posted, and hopefully it has arrived at her door.
This is the 4th year that I have gone through the motions, and then every year I never know if she receives it, or if she is told it is from someone else. Does she know how much her Dad and gran and grandpa, uncles and aunts and cousins love and miss her?
What I would give to see her, to hear her voice and give her a hug.
I must be such a bad person for this to have happened, seeing her for the very first time was so amazing and held such promise, now my heart is empty, without her in my life.
Not one day goes by that I don't think of her.
"L......... I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas, with lots of fun and laughter."
