Summer is on its way with the start of daylight savings.
Daylight saving time started at 2 am on Saturday 26th Sept, with all clocks getting set forward an hour.
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 homes.
