WASHING machines past their prime and no longer wanted are needed by an Oswestry tourist attraction for its latest display.

The British Ironwork Centre, off the A5 close to Oswestry, has made the appeal so it can build a giant Rubik’s Cube out of the machines.

A spokesman for the centre said that the plan is to inspire people to find new uses and purpose for their waste.


They said: “We want to build the world’s biggest Rubik’s Cube from old unwanted washing machines.
We are continually wanting to encourage the people of the world.

“We want them to imagine new innovative purposes for their unwanted waste.

“In order to create this project, we need lots of old broken washing machines?
