Daylight Saving

Starts25th SeptemberStarts24th September

Daylight Saving starts in Spring on the last Sunday in September so we can get a little more sun. Clocks get put forward from 2.00am to 3.00am so remember the season and think "looking forward to summer".

Daylight Saving ends in Autumn on the first Sunday in April. Clocks get put back from 3.00am to 2.00am so again remember the season and think (with a sigh) "we're nearly back to winter".
