Hi, I’m Jessica, the author and editor of GREENWOOD blog. You may have seen me out in the village with my camera. I am enthusiastic about nature on our doorstep and sharing what I see. I have been able to indulge my interest since I moved here twenty years ago and especially after I retired from a career involving a number of different aspects of both nature and history, including work in a museum, a research laboratory, and as a consultant in archaeology.
I live here with my partner Colin who I first met over 50 years ago at university. He has twin passions – Newport County Football Club of which he is a life-long supporter, and philosophy. As a former teacher of philosophy he continues to enjoy reading, writing, and giving talks about it.
Don’t forget that contributions to this blog are welcomed from any Greenwood House residents. It would be great to put a name to some of the faces we meet and learn a little about them. It could be about one of your interests, hobbies, activities, or something about your life in the past or the present. A picture (or pictures) and a few sentences of description are all that is needed. You can get in touch through the Contact page on the Greenwood site (https://mygreenwood.blog). Hoping to hear from you.
