Scanning my wife's school details I see the fhrs record has the wrong
postcode when compared to both the PAF file and the schools edubase
entry. I have dropped the fhrs:id on the boundary rather than the main
building, but we can identify the exact location of the kitchen so
SHOULD that be an extra element in this small campus? I don't see the
need to add 'postcode' to every element inside the boundary so that is
only attached to the boundary. And I must get around to adding the extra
classroom building some time ... along with the housing estate currently
being built next door.
