    I like this Ian – thanks for providing a positive example. It’s a bit daunting taking on a career switch after turning 50 but I’m coming across a few inspiring stories like yours and feel more energised and excited about it. 24 years of primary school teaching has been mostly good but I’m now ready to move on, into the world of ecology, a long term passion.

      Hi Stuart. I work with Ian at Wildwood and have also changed career after 50. I was a secondary teacher for 30 years so if you would like any advice then please get in touch, I’d be happy to chat.

        Hi David – that sounds great. I’ve become very aware of Wildwood’s profile recently; it sounds like a great place to be. As I’m still in the transition out of teaching (which will hopefully be complete by Easter), I’ve been increasing the volunteering I’ve been doing, along with signing up for a range of ecological courses, all of which have been very refreshing.
        At the moment, I would love to get involved in volunteering with Wildwood, especially if there are projects within Herefordshire – do you have such possibly short-term opportunities?
        Many thanks,
