The clocks went forward last night - did you remember?

Summertime is here.

WE CAN ALL enjoy a grand stretch in the evening tonight.

Slightly darker mornings from tomorrow too – but let’s not focus on the negatives.

The six-monthly clock change took place overnight. 

In case you forgot, all watches and clocks should have been set forward one hour at 1am when Daylight Saving Time officially started. (Of course, some phones and devices do this automatically so make sure to check the settings).

We’ll officially be on summer time until the end of October.
