Daylight savings begins

Today marks the beginning of daylight savings time in the UK and Europe, which means clocks will go forward one-hour at 0100 on Sunday. Daylight savings time (DST) – giving us an extra hour of sunlight in the evenings – was first proposed by New Zealander George Hudson in 1895. This year on 30 April will mark the centenary of DST in Europe, which was first adapted by Germany in 1916. Enjoy the extra bit of sun! Unless you are in Scotland, in which case, enjoy the extra bit of time you can see grey clouds.
