Coronavirus: Send free lockdown messages to grandparents




Do you have grandparents in the Newmarket area who are really missing their grandchildren?

We're launching a campaign to allow you to let them know the kids are thinking of them.

The coronavirus outbreak and social distancing measures are forcing families to spend extended periods of time apart.

For many people the worst thing about lockdown is not seeing their grandchildren

Many grandparents have not seen their grandchildren in over a month and it could be several weeks, or even months, before generations can be safely re-united.

Your family may have even had a tiny new addition, and siblings now a new younger brother or sister, that grandma and grandad have yet to meet or maybe even see!

If your children's grandparents are missing their grandchildren, send a message to them through us

We are offering families the chance to send a personal message from the grandchildren - free of charge - to the grandparents they are missing, complete with a photograph of the children.

We will print them all in our edition on Thursday, May 7.

Please send your short message and one jpeg image of the kids via email to the newsdesk.
