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.

It is a fine line.

I have waited a few days before posting about this, as wanted to think it through.
Some of you may have noticed that Fathers 4 Justice started a campaign at the weekend, it was a very visible and colourful, shall we say, protest.
They want to raise public awareness to the fact that a high street retailer is involved with a website for females, within the website there are some women who post some pretty strong comments about men, in some cases vile comments.
F4J of course are fighting for the right to see their children, and for that I applaud them. What I am not so sure about is how this recent campaign is supporting the children?
I have no doubt that someone will tell me!
It appears that the website concerned has taken down the thread which contained the statement from them.
I am all for protesting and raising public awareness, but it felt a bit like stooping to the websites level.
The F4J video of children 4 justice is the most powerful thing I have ever seen and is shows who the important people are in this heartbreak.
Dads, Mums and Grandparents are certainly angry they are loosing their children to Parental Alienation and we must all do what we feel is right for us.
As the title says, 'Its a fine line.'
