Granny, grandma, nan, nana, gran – whatever she is called, a grandmother can be a very special person. So the people at Grannynet, the community-based website for grandmothers and Infacol, manufacturers of Britain’s number one infant colic remedy, have teamed up to recognise these Supergrans!
Daughters, granddaughters, sons, grandsons, families and friends are being asked to nominate their granny each month throughout the year, leading up to one very special grandmother being awarded the title Grannynet and Infacol’s Granny of the Year in April 2013.
Each month the winning granny is treated to a prize for being a star. The overall winner will be presented with the award at a special ceremony by TV and radio presenter Gloria Hunniford as well as win a break at Enid Blyton’s favourite hotel, Knoll House in Dorset, voted by The Oldie magazine as the best hotel to take grandchildren.
Winners to date include the wonderful Hilda Keay, who was born in the year the Titanic began its fateful journey and George V was on the throne and is still the centre of family life today and Grannynet blogger, Jane Jackson, who runs a support group for grandparents who have been denied contact with their grandchildren.
