Charity shops won't take them and even Ebay have failed me.
So, does anyone in Bowes and Bounds have a video cassette player and want some FREE videos? Photo and list below. I'm putting my reputation on the line here folks, showing that I'm obviously one of the biggest kids of my generation.

But I was really struck by residents' solidarity, civic-mindedness and focus on the issues Monday. Admirable
