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.

100 days of happiness.

Ok so I have pinched  this idea from the wonderful world of social media, where people are being asked to photograph one thing a day that makes them happy and brings them joy.
So, I propose that you either take a picture or write just one thing a day that has made you happy.
It is so easy when we are caught up in our own despair to not notice the great things about life.
You can either write them in the comments section under this post, or on the FB page.
So what has made you happy today?


Day One:
Watching the Gold Finches feeding their babies on our bird feeder.


  1. I had got up to day 20 but had to remove all comments so will start again.
    Day 2: Receiving an amazing basket of flowers from someone I have never met.

  2. Day 3: Being grateful for a wonderful day.
