Reminder – Clocks went back and British Summer Time has ended!

REMINDER:

The clocks went back by one hour at 2am on Sunday 26th October 2014.

The change takes us from British Summer Time in the UK, to Greenwich Mean Time. It will be lighter in the mornings but the evenings will get darker earlier.

Did you know… that clocks first went forward for an hour in this country on Sunday, 21st May 1916, enacted as a wartime measure during World War 1?

By introducing British Summer Time it was hoped to be able to use daylight-hours more productively for the war effort during the summer and save coal used for powering lighting. The act of putting the clocks back in October brings time back in line with Greenwich Mean Time.
