Past News & Events > Chris Leaves, founder of 'Second Generation' in Peterborough - 2nd March 2010

It was lovely to have Chris & Colin Leaves visit us today to tell their story.  Chris is the founder of the group in Peterborough ‘Second Time Around’.  She has been running the group for more than eighteen years; her grandchildren are now grown up.  

Chris and her husband know just what it is like to be raising the grandchildren, she has lots of really useful advice and is a huge support and inspiration  to us all.  Chris started the group just like us, knowing no other grandparents in this situation, but through her work in Social Services grandparents began to contact her.   

Chris is still very busy with family and she also helps set- up support groups like ours around the country.
