Stop The Clocks

If you remember the saying ‘spring forward, fall back’ you’ll know that the clocks go back in the autumn. So we’ll soon need to go around the house adjusting our timepieces when the clocks go back an hour – don’t worry, your smartphone should update itself. But we will get a dreamy extra hour in bed (unless you use that time to change your clocks!).

This will mean the UK is on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), which is the standard time zone against which all other time zones in the world are referenced. In case you’re wondering, the reason it happens on a weekend, in the middle of the night, is to limit the disruption for schools and businesses. Note the clocks will go forward again on Sunday 10th March in Canada and on Sunday 31st of March in the UK and France, meaning we lose an hour of sleep.
