It’s nearly that time of the year again when we need to change the clocks.
We all have many devices now that usually update the time automatically but for other clocks it means the chore of going around the house altering them by an hour!
The big downside is that we lose an hour in bed but the upside is that this marks the start of British Summer Time and boy, do we need to know that this is on its way!
So what does this mean for us?
- We can start putting those cold, damp, miserable and gloomy days behind us
- We welcome the lighter and longer evenings, meaning we won’t be going to and from swimming lessons in the pitch dark
- We don’t need to use as much artificial light
- Studies have found that it is safer when the clocks go forward – improved road safety and less robberies
We have a little while to wait as this year the clocks go forward on Sunday 25th March at 1am but we are on countdown!
