Posted on March 27, 2011 by Number Plates
The start of British Summer Time takes place at the end of March. It usually takes place on the last Sunday in March, which is Today‼ From 1.00 am on this morning, the official time across the UK will move forward to 2.00 am, as British Summer Time starts for another year.
British Summer Time dates back to 1907 when an Englishman, William Willett, campaigned to advance clocks by 80 minutes. He proposed four moves of 20 minutes at the beginning of the spring and summer months, and to return to Greenwich Mean Time in a similar manner in the autumn. The following year, the House of Commons rejected a Bill to advance the clocks by one hour during the spring and summer months. However Summer time was first defined in an Act of Parliament in 1916. The clocks were moved one hour ahead of GMT from the spring to the autumn.
So don’t be turning up late for work tomorrow, change your Clocks now‼!
