Loughborough hits the 5G switch


EE has recently announced it has switched on 5G in 21 new towns and cities across the UK - including Loughborough. The town becomes the second


place in the county to receive 5G on EE’s network, following the launch in Leicester last year. EE has now brought the UK’s best mobile experience to a total of 71 locations, and 5G to more places in the country than any other provider.


‘The arrival of 5G in Loughborough is a fantastic boost’


The company, part of BT Group,


was the first operator to launch 5G coverage in the UK in May 2019 and has been expanding its network daily. As well as switching on the first 5G sites in new cities and large towns, EE has also brought 5G to more high footfall places, including Bath’s Royal Crescent and Pulteney Bridge, London Bridge and London’s Thornton Heath railway station. Wendy Sycamore, BT Group


Regional Lead for the Midlands, said: “EE has rolled out 5G in Loughborough, meaning even more people and businesses in the area can benefit from the latest mobile technology. As well as providing faster speeds and more capacity, the future potential for 5G is incredible.” Nick Rushton, Leicestershire


County Council leader, said: “The arrival of 5G in Loughborough is a fantastic boost. Digital technology is transforming every element of the way we live, and excellent connectivity is vital to our economy.”

School pupils benefiting from life lessons in money


Dorothy Goodman School pupils found out how to open a savings account at Hinckley & Rugby as part of a day of financial education sponsored by the building society. The teenage pupils visited the society’s branch on


Hinckley’s Castle Street after enjoying a day of learning that money matters, led by Ed Flack, a financial education expert from the not-for-profit WizeUp. Hinckley & Rugby has been sponsoring WizeUp’s


visits to schools in Leicestershire and Warwickshire for the past eight years Ed covered topics including earning and saving with


pupils at the Hinckley school for children with special educational needs and disabilities, before visiting the


Derbyshire farm gets a boost in profits


A Derbyshire farm is more profitable following advice from commercial property consultancy, Innes England. The firm was appointed to manage Bankfields Farm in 2018,


with a brief to completely review the site and advise on how to get the best return on investment. Steve Barker and his father Tim decided to diversify the farm in


2003, in which they began to rent units to local businesses, alongside running a horse livery and tree surgery business. They soon found themselves having difficulty keeping on top of the varied business sectors covered. Matt Howson, Associate Director at Innes England, said: “The


income generated by diversification is a vital component of many farming businesses, so it’s important that investments make a healthy return. It’s our job to help our clients make the most of their assets and good communication is key. “We spent a lot of time with Steve and Tim, getting to know them,


understanding their needs and aspirations. Our strategic advice has allowed Steve and Tim to reduce future liabilities and ensure the lettings bring in vital income at market rate.”

Draycott, said: “It is so important for everyone to be able to learn about earning and saving money. It is even more important to give our pupils a voice about their finances.” Hinckley & Rugby’s Branch Office Manager Tracey


Phipps said: “It’s always a pleasure to welcome Dorothy Goodman School pupils, especially after Ed has prepared them so well for their visit. “As a trusted financial services provider based here


in Hinckley, we are always happy to help young people with their savings. As we are a mutual building society, it is members such as savers who we exist to serve.”
