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 granddaughter.

Dear L............,
It is almost 6 long years since I last gave you a hug, listened to you giggle and watched you talking to the tiny fairies at the bottom of the garden.
I am 6 years older and so are you, the little girl with no worries in the world is now a young woman soon to be a teenager. A young woman who has had to deal with many experiences in your young life, changes, loss and sadness and I have no doubt many good things as well.
I know that you will have been strong for people around you and that you will still be giving joy to many.
Just because I have not seen you for so long, does not mean that I have not held you in my heart every minute, every day, every year, and I always will.
The love I have for you, gives me strength to carry on and to give help to others who are feeling the same.
You need to know that your family are still here for you whenever you need us, just a breath away.
Our arms will always be ready for those hugs, our ears ready to hear that giggle and our eyes ready to just watch.
Love you Darling,
