Sorry if already been asked. I couldn’t find a thread.
Can grandparents provide childcare? It’s a regular, long-standing arrangement . They stopped during last lockdown and it was awful.

GPs are in good health & not especially vulnerable.

Looks like it:

Parents are able to form a childcare bubble with another household for the purposes of informal childcare, where the child is 13 or under.

Can I just add - is this allowed for both grandparents together or just one at a time?
