DON’T FORGET YOUR CLOCKS ‘SPRING FORWARD’ ON 29TH MARCH!

Spring is certainly in the air and the daffodils are out. March is the month of change, when nature gradually comes out of hibernation and we start to see the light at the end of the wintry tunnel.

Although there is activity in January and February - chirpy little robins with their bright red breasts, regal pheasants strutting in gardens and delicate snowdrops - the natural world is in general quite dormant. Not so in March. Gradually mornings and evenings become lighter and the days get longer, and although the changes are initially small, they make a big impact! In fact on Friday 20th March it’s the Spring or Vernal Equinox, the point at which the length of night and day are equal. After this the days keep getting longer.

One event that accentuates the differences March brings is the changing of the clocks. On Saturday 29th March all clocks go forward at 1am, leaving us with darker mornings but lighter evenings. All computers and mobile phones adjust themselves automatically, and there are plenty of watches and clocks nowadays that do so too, but there’s always one or two timepieces around the house that need to be changed manually, so don’t get caught out!

So whatever you get up to on 29th March enjoy the lighter evening safe in the knowledge that brighter mornings are just around the corner.
