Springing Forward In Eastbourne – Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time, we hear this twice a year but what does it mean? Well DST means that in the summer months the clocks are set forward 1 hour from standard time and when we reach the fall we put it back 1 hour again.

Why do we use Daylight Saving Time?

Simply to make better use of the natural daylight during the year. Lighter mornings earlier evenings.

When does the Daylight Saving Time begin?

As we enter spring, summer is on the horizon and DST is due to begin on 31st March 2018 at 1 am – which basically means we lose an hour of sleep every day until our body clocks adjust and get used to it, plus we get more time in the sun in the evenings, if it ever decides to stop raining in Eastbourne.

What do you need to do?

Because Daylight Saving Time is beginning that means you need to put your clocks forward by 1 hour, you may find that most our your mobile devices and appliances may change without you doing anything overnight. But you may still need to change your clocks and timers manually.

If you need any help changing your timers just give the office a call on 01323 644570 or pop us an email to book an engineer visit.
