This Easter Sunday don’t forget that your clocks need to be put forward!

Winter is out the door and summer is on its way! 

Say goodbye to the cold, wintery nights and hello to the warm sunshine and long days because on March 31 (Easter Sunday), we will be turning our clocks forward. 

For the early worms this may be exciting, but for night owls unfortunately it means that we lose an hour in bed. The change will occur at 1.00am on Sunday, March 31 and it’s worth remembering that while your smartphone and laptops will update automatically, analogue clocks and other digital clocks, like those in your car and on your oven, will need to be changed manually. 

Changing the clocks by an hour began more than 100 years ago, as a result of a campaign started in 1907 by William Willett to stop people wasting valuable hours of light in the summer months and to save fuel during the war. Parliament then passed the Summertime Act in 1916, thereby creating British Summer Time. Germany was the first country to adopt the clock-changing plan in April that year and the UK followed in May. 

So, until the clocks go back again on Sunday, 27 October this year, that’s it for those cold, wintery nights!
