Don’t forget to put your clocks back on Halloween

Don’t forget to put your clocks back on Sunday 31 October – Halloween – at 2am.  This means that we gain an extra hour in bed, which has got to be a good thing!


Although lots of devices, such as mobile phones, computers and laptops etc. change the time automatically for you, which means don’t need to do a thing, there are some devices that do need to be changed manually, such as your central heating timer.  So don’t forget to move the clock forward an hour beforehand to make sure you don’t have to wait for the place to warm up.

You may also need to check any timers you have set for your lights, particularly in the workplace, to make sure lighting turns on and off when you need it and you don’t have to fumble around in the dark.

Check your vehicle clock(s) too as these often need to be changed manually. You don’t want to turn up too early for an appointment because you’ve forgotten to change the time.

Make the most of the extra hour on Sunday and enjoy your extra hour.
