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.

Letter to my beautiful granddaughter.

Dear Sweetpea,
Easter is just around the corner, and I can hardly believe that it is 5 years since we all saw you, there is not one day that passes that we don't think about you, and all of our lives have a piece of the jig-saw missing.
Do you remember that last time, on Easter Sunday what fun you had running around the garden carefully following the Easter bunnies instructions to find eggs?
You didn't stop laughing the whole time, and then you sat in the summer house trying to make that impossible decision as which one to eat first!
Can you also remember sowing your sunflower seeds in little pots, and watering them ready for when you would be back again to plant them out in the garden. Sadly, it wasn't to be, but we planted them for you and they were beautiful and every time I see a yellow sunflower I can see your smiley face.
Mmm , what happy memories.
That was in 2007, when you were a little 7 year old girl now you will soon be 12years old, a young women.
What a lot must have happened in your life as indeed all of ours.
We are all looking forward to your twin cousins being born, and wish you could be in their lives.
Maybe one day.
Never forget how much we all love you, and we are here for you whenever you need us.
God Bless, Sweetpea.
