Nice ideas. My thoughts:
* GLAMs seems a well-defined, well-scoped and accessible task, I like it!
* Shops - no, IMHO. I've said this before, but a one-off push to
update a high street's shops is unhelpful in my experience it leaves
rapidly outdated data thereafter. Shops data needs local maintainers
not one-off projects because of the turnover rate.
* Pubs - no, IMHO. OSM's got loads of pub data, largely fine already,
and it's also a very "classic" OSM topic which not only has its own
critical mass but also appeals only to pub-frequenting segments of
society, not a good focus for making OSM useful to new appreciators.

> * Shops - even where mapped, these soon fall out-of-date.
> * Vets - maybe not enough to do on their own. Combine with shops?
> * Pubs, bars & other licensed premises - see
> for inspiration. Also breweries.
> * Public toilets - follows nicely from the previous suggestion! Maybe in
> collaboration with https://greatbritishpublictoiletmap.rca.ac.uk/
> * FixMe & Notes - let's clear the backlog!
> What are your thoughts?
