The clocks will change this weekend and here is everything you need to know.

Lighter evenings are on their way, from March 25 to be specific.

If you need to remember what way the clocks change twice a year, it's spring forward and fall back so this month we will lose an hour of sleep.

The clocks will go forward an hour into British Summer Time (BST) at 1am and your smartphones and internet devices should automatically change.

Daylight saving was originally proposed by former Chislehurst resident William Willett, who became incensed by the waste of daylight first thing in the morning during summer.

In 1907 he published a pamphlet called The Waste of Daylight, outlining plans to encourage people out of bed earlier in summer by changing the time on the nation's clocks.

Willett spent the rest of his life fighting to get acceptance of his new time-shifting scheme.

When he died in 1915, the government was still refusing to back British Summer Time.

But the following year, Germany introduced the system, with Britain following in May 1916.

Today in 2018 the woods in which Willett would spend his mornings riding his horse has been preserved and a sundial has been erected in the clearing.

So, we suggest you go to bed an hour earlier the night before so it’s not such a horrible shock on the Sunday when you feel robbed of that precious hour.

Alternatively - If you want to celebrate in Petts Wood on March 25 you could treat yourself to a pint at The Daylight Inn pub.

The clocks will then go back on October 28.
