A NEW committee has been elected to run a Sikh Temple in Huddersfield.

The officials have been chosen by members of the Guru Nanak Gurdwara Sikh Temple in Prospect Street, Springwood.

The temple was built in 1975. Thousands of Sikhs from all over Yorkshire come to pray every week.

The Gurdwara Committee also runs the Punjabi school, which has more than 150 students.

Inderpal Randhawa, stage secretary of the Gurdwara, said everybody was welcome to attend any time if they wanted to learn more about Sikhism.

The organisation recently changed its name from Guru Nanak Sikh Temple Prospect Street to Guru Nanak Gurdwara.
