Welcome to OpenStreetMap.
I see that the Yahoo! imagery in this area is pretty good. Based on
the imagery, your points of interest seem reasonable.
In general, I need to feel more confident when I am changing the work
of another editor, than when I am adding data in an area with limited
data. Since you have visited this area, and the imagery is good you
should add to the map.
You can make a difference by adding roads and roundabouts. Just leave
the road names blank if you don't remember them. Adding the points of
interest that you recall will help the map in this area as well.
