Clocks Back

on Fri Oct 23 2015, 09:26
First topic message reminder :




The time changes this weekend, on October 28 at 2:00 am which means you'll have a shorter night out if you're out clubbing until the wee hours but an extra hour in bed on Sunday morning if you like to be sensible. To remember which way to set your watch, there's a useful (albeit slightly American) mnemonic: “spring forward, fall back”.

It was an Englishman's idea...

In 1907, a man called William Willett introduced the idea of British Summer Time, also known as Daylight Saving Time in order to prevent people from wasting valuable hours of light during summer mornings.

Willett then spent the rest of his life trying to convince people his scheme was a good one.


Sadly, he died of the flu in 1915 at the age of 58; a year before Germany adopted his clock-changing plan on April 30, 1916 when the clocks were set forward at 11 pm. Britain followed suit a month later on May 21.

I realised when sat on Parbold hill about half an hour ago that it's me that's not set right, the bike was the right time, everything else wasn't...I have set everything back to the original time. Embarassed
