  • User:Dendodge - I live there, so can help out every s often (my main interest is The Beatles, so I won't be terribly active here)
  • Dsergeant - I started quite a few of the articles in the North of the county, was brought up in Waddingham. I still keep a watch on those articles but have to admit I have done very little recently.
  • DominicCyninge Local to Horncastle. I have attempted to start, and have expanded several Lincolnshire based articles. Would like a better article on Horncastle Horse Fair. Plan in future to expand Kingdom of Lindsey. I am, unfortunately, incomepetent.
