Ditto here, for Medway (and when I've got that down to a reasonable 
state/weather warmed up, I've got Swale, Maidstone and parts of 
Tonbridge/Malling to keep me busy.

On the plus side, fhrs does give a fair coverage of:

Social clubs
Fast Food
social care establishments

Though I rather think with social care ones those run by social services 
directly have their addresses obfuscated or handled centrally, for possibly 
good reasons.

I'll dip in and out of quarterly projects, as the projects suit my 
survey-only methods (checking against the tools) as surveying gives me a 
reason to get on the bike or out walking.
