Daylight savings sees clock moved back an hour

Summer is over and winter is on the way.

Daylight saving time ended at 3am on Sunday April 4, with all clocks getting set back an hour to New Zealand Standard Time.

Daylight saving time will resume at 2am on September 26.

What is daylight saving time?

It’s that time of year when the clocks change, but why does this happen?

Daylight saving time was first introduced in New Zealand in 1927. The main reason is to provide people with an additional hour to enjoy the outdoors in the evenings.

Changing clocks also acts as a reminder for people to test the smoke alarms in their home.
