Destubathon in March 2020

The Wikipedia:The Great Britain/Ireland Destubathon is planned for March 2020, a contest/editathon to eliminate as many stubs as possible from all counties. Amazon vouchers/book prizes are planned. £50 available for the most Wales destubs. Sign up on page if interested in participating; hope this will prove to be good fun and productive.
