    I’ll be in Milton Keynes next Thursday and have about 20 childrens vhs including Lion King, Lion King 2, Jungle Book, Mulan, The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. If you can be at the central train station around 10am on Thursday December the 18th I can bring them. Message me back with your email address if you’re interested.

      Dear Heather,

      It looks like the system doesn’t let me submit my reply if I include my email so I’m sorry I missed the date. But if you are ever in Milton Keynes again, text me your email so we can arrange this. I’d definitely love to get those videotapes. My number is 07985296744. Thanks. Misha.
