Projects - Wales and Welsh counties

This page is a summary of the various projects undertaken on the county pages within Wales Genuki that are/were maintained by Gareth Hicks.
The idea is to centrally record what has been done and in some cases how it was done, how long it took and how much support it had from other people.
Unless other people are specifically named a project was actioned  by Gareth Hicks .

The end product is akin to a history of these particular county pages - I hope this will be of some interest to whoever follows me in years to come in maintaining them.
