Sleep an hour longer as clocks go back

Don’t forget that clocks go back this weekend, so you can spend an extra hour in bed sleeping (or whatever) on Sunday morning.

The last Sunday in October, like the last in March, is also a good time to change batteries in smoke alarms and other essential kit around the home – as they are dates that most will remember.

The time change is used in some 70 countries. In Poland, it came into force at first between the wars, then from 1946-1949 and 1957-1964, before being adopted permanently in 1977.
