THIS is Fran Mitchell with her lovely grandchildren.

She was reunited with Leila (19 weeks old) and Reagan (3) last weekend.

Fran said: "Leila was only four weeks old when lockdown began. I've missed seeing her grow to the beautiful wee girl she is today.

"Thank goodness for video calls, but nothing beats holding Leila in my arms and having a cheeky little hug!

"It was amazing to walk through the woods with my grandchildren at the weekend. As a carer it's been very difficult for me being separated from my loved ones, but worth the anxiety and the wait."

Fran lives in Lossiemouth while her grandchildren live in Buckie with dad Chris and mum Megan.

They went walking in the Lossiemouth woods on the bear hunt trail.


With lockdown easing, more families will be reunited and we would like to spread the joy of these happy reunions.

Cuddle was worth weight in gold
