TICK-TOCK, don’t forget to change your clock!

IN line with other EU countries the clocks in Spain go back one hour this weekend at 3am on Sunday, October 31.

Clocks next go forward again on Sunday, 27th March 2011.

Benjamin Franklin was the first to suggest adjusting the clocks in an essay in 1784. But it was William Willett, in 1907, who started the campaign to move the clocks forward for the lighter and warmer months and backwards during the winter.
