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.

Forgive me a personal post.

On Friday it will be my beautiful granddaughters 12th birthday, how I would love to give her a birthday hug and share some time with her, but it is not to be.
I think about her everyday but this time is particularly hard.
I wonder what she is doing to celebrate, a party with friends, bowling or dancing?
The most tragic thing in this is, she must think we have forgotten her, that we don't love her and I can't begin to describe in words how that feels. It tears me apart.
When I first held her in my arms, so small so vulnerable, those trusting eyes looking up at me, "I am so sorry L....., I let you down, the future I thought we would have was not to be.
Life is so precious, so short, live yours to the full, take every opportunity that is given to you make a difference in this world."
As long as I am on this earth, I will be here for her, just waiting.
Happy Birthday, Sweet Pea.xx

When conflict arises for whatever reason, it is the adults who have the problem, not the children, the children should never be part of adult conflict.
