Nominations Open for Grandparent of the Year

Media Releases

They are the smiling faces that light up their grandkid’s worlds and they are the helping hand for parents, and now it’s time to say a big thank you by nominating your Local Grandparent of the Year in the Wallsend electorate.

State Member for Wallsend, Ms Sonia Hornery MP, is calling for the community to nominate a great local grandparent for the Wallsend Grandparent of the Year.

“There’s no denying it’s been tough on our grandparents this year, with COVID-19 meaning they have had to isolate more than most to keep themselves safe,” Ms Hornery said.

“That means they haven’t been able to see their family members as much, but they have still been there for us on the phone and via video calls whenever we need them.

“Grandparents Day is the perfect opportunity to show grandparents just how much they are loved and appreciated.

“We have some truly inspiring grandparents in the Wallsend electorate and it would be great to see them honoured.

“Nominations are now open and can we made via my website. I would encourage the community to think about a local grandparent who deserves some recognition.

“Grandparents are often the glue which holds families together.

“It’s been a tough year with COVID and isolation so let’s celebrate all the good things that our grandparents do for our families and communities.

“The love, care and support grandparents give is something we should all cherish.

“Grandparents Day is the perfect time to shine a spotlight on these special people and give them the recognition they deserve,” said Ms Hornery.

Nominations close at 5pm on Friday, 9 October 2020.
