Grandparents in self-isolation due to coronavirus are being cheered up by families sending photo messages.

Maisy Myers would like to send lots of love to her Grandma and Grandad, Dawn and Jon Pollard. Maisy and her mummy miss you both lots and are particularly thinking of our mum and Grandma Dawn who is working hard as a nurse in the NHS.Maisy Myers would like to send lots of love to her Grandma and Grandad, Dawn and Jon Pollard.

With people being urged to stay indoors except for shopping for essentials or to exercise, many families face being apart in the coming weeks.

And with older people seen as amongst those most at risk, grandparents face being isolated from their grandchildren.

But families from across Norfolk have taken the opportunity to send a photograph along with a message of love to say they are thinking of them.

Messages include: “Stay safe, we are thinking of you today and everyday” and “We can’t wait to come round again for your lovely roast dinner and ice cream with sprinkles!”

If you would like to tell your grandparents how much you’re missing them, please submit a photograph and your message to sarah.ravencroft@archant.co.uk
