Children have told how they feel ‘lost’ without their beloved grandparents as they are forced to social distance during the coronavirus lockdown

We asked youngsters to share messages for their grandparents to show how much they missed them and to give them a boost as they self isolate.

Nicola Turner’s son Hugo is four years old and sent a message to his Nannie.

“Nannie I can’t wait to see you once the cold has gone away and I can show you how I have learnt to ride my bike.

“I miss you so much and can’t wait for the party at your house.

“Love you down to the metal in the ground, up to the aeroplanes in the sky.”

Hugo’s Nannie has been working hard throughout lockdown according to Nicola and she says the family would be “lost without her”.
