Welcome to Grannynet
I’m Verity and I thought of the idea behind Grannynet when I had my first child in 2006. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you as grandmothers that becoming a mum turns your life upside down – I found it to be one of the most amazing but overwhelming things I’ve done.
Suddenly I saw my mum in a totally new light. I was now able to appreciate all she’d done for me and saw the beginnings of an incredibly strong and unique bond between my child and her grandmother.
Aware of how online networks had provided such support to the parenting community and realising how hands on my mum would be with my daughter, I saw a need for a social networking site for the UK’s grandmothers. That was when Grannynet was born.
What you see today on Grannynet is a ‘one-stop-shop’ that we believe meets all the needs of modern grandmothers.
As my idea has grown, so has the team with Charlotte joining me in 2009, followed by Lisa and Louise this year. We were even recently sent “Her Majesty’s good wishes for continues success with our website”!
We work as a small team, but what really makes Grannynet work, is you. So, we hope you enjoy reading and joining in with what Grannynet has to offer – we are here to give you support, advice and smiles everyday of your wonderful journey as a granny.
As one member put it “Grannynet makes me feel as if I am in a special club just for me, love it.” One of our team have also written The Grannynetters ode, take a look to learn more about us.
