The Sikh community in Britain organised a fund raising fair for a memorial statue which commenced on Sunday.

The sixth anniversary of the annual fair named ‘Sikh Mela’ was arranged at Yorkshire Lions’s Warrenside base in Deighton area in Huddersfield. The memorial statue will be an epitome of dedication to thousands of Sikhs who lost their lives fighting for British Empire in the two World Wars.

The alcohol free event included various activities, like turban tying contest, sword fighting, strongman contest and specially an American SWAT team demonstration which showed how SWAT makes arrest. Community members along with several Huddersfield army veterans honoured the Sikh soldiers died during the wars.

Live music was also arranged by Sikh artists, featuring Birmingham based punjabi singer Sukshinder Shinda. Among other traditional games for children was a show called ‘bird of prey’ which stole attention among most. Tug of war and Thai boxing competition were also organised.

Mobile network operator EE said on Wednesday that it will launch Britain’s first 5G service in six major cities on May 30.

EE will switch on its 5G service in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester later this month, the Xinhua news agency reported.

The company also said that it will roll out 5G rapidly from Wednesday, with more than 100 new 5G sites per month being added, providing 5G in more cities: Bristol, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham, Sheffield, Liverpool, Hull, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow.

Some media reports claimed that EE will launch a 5G network “without Huawei technology as originally planned”.

But a spokesperson from BT, the parent group of EE, said: “As we have previously stated, Huawei will continue to supply our 5G radio network infrastructure — they remain a valued and innovative supplier.”

Under the new 5G network, EE said that some customers will break the one gigabit-per-second milestone on their 5G smartphones. The fastest speed possible when EE launched 4G in 2012 was just 50 megabits per second.

“This is the start of the UK’s 5G journey and great news for our customers that want and need the best connections,” said Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s consumer division. (IANS)
