The clocks went back an hour on Sunday Morning 29th October and the dark evenings are upon us.
An interesting point is, should we bother changing the clocks at all during the year. Are the evenings long enough as it is in the Summer? Parents voicing concerns over their children walking home from school in the dusk/dark may too be a valid concern. Could there be a small connection to crime too with the shorter days. But then, conversely, not changing the clocks may mean it doesn't get bright early enough in the mornings.
What do ye think.
