I believe in knowledge being open and freely available. That is why my user name is my real name. The 'I' is to distinguish me from Sir Peter Vardy, the car salesman, and Dr Peter Vardy PhD, the theologian who writes Christian evangelical books. So far as I know, I am not related to either of these, or to the footballer Jamie Vardy.
Congratulations! Here's a medal for you in appreciation of your hardwork in creating, expanding and nominating 25+ articles for DYK. Keep up the good work, Peter - fine work! --Victuallers (talk) 17:31, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Congratulations are in order! You have passed the milestone of 200 articles created or expanded by yourself, ones that were shown on the Main page in the "Did you know?" section. Your articles, primarily churches and outstanding buildings, have been of top value to the encyclopedia. Superb! Binksternet (talk) 16:17, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for writing up so many redundant, abandoned, and ruined churches, thus saving them at least virtually. Drmies (talk) 17:29, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

The Barnstar of Diligence
For your excellent and consistent work on British churches and houses and for setting a fine example for others to follow. ♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:35, 20 July 2011 (UTC)
I cannot say enough positive things about your work on churches, country houses and villages. You represent everything that is fine about England at a time when its in a bad state! Keep up the great work Peter! ♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:43, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
For your excellent work on Listed buildings in Northwich. We should have this sort of list for every listed building in the UK by locality, it's very valuable content. Keep up the great work! ♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 10:24, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Congratulations on reaching 100000 edits. You have achieved a milestone that very few editors have been able to accomplish. The Wikipedia Community thanks you for your continuing efforts. Keep up the good work!
I can't believe these is a parish in Cheshire and frequently many others who have not been pleased to receive your attention. All those churches that are sometimes abandoned and seemingly unloved have graced this project and now make the wiki that much richer. Thank you on behalf of the DYK project, myself and the wiki for your contribution, 100K edits and continuing calm. Thanks. Victuallers (talk) 23:45, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
