WREXHAM Council is asking people to dig out their old computers as part of a new exhibition looking at the history of writing.

Whether it be an old ZX Spectrum or Commodore 64, BBC or Dragon 32, the council would like anybody who can help to contribute them to Wrexham Museum's display.

The exhibition will be held in October and will also show how computers have changed over the last 20 years.

A spokeswoman said: "Only vintage models please - pre-1990. We can't take old pc's. All computers will be returned to their owners after the exhibition closes. We are also looking for old typewriters and any other obsolete writing equipment to supplement the exhibition."

Anybody who can help is asked to contact Jane Rawlins at the museum on 01978-317972.
