British Summer Time Starts this Weekend!

British Summer Time starts this weekend as the clock spring forward an hour on Sunday.

To most people this will mean an hour less in bed as 0700 become 0600.

There has been much debate as to why we still change the clocks twice a year. Why not just keep it the same all year round?

It is widely thought that we spring forward and fall back the clocks to give farmers more light to bring in their crops during the summer harvest.

The origins of British Summer Time is actually a little less logical.

British Summer Time was actually first proposed in 1907 by a Mr William Willet. Mr Willet was a very keen horse-rider. He would take early morning rides through the woods to make the most of the early morning sunshine whilst everyone else was still sleeping.

These early morning rides prompted him to write  an article proposing changing the clocks to allow everyone to take advantage of the sun.

It wasn’t until 1916, a year after Mr Willet’s death, that the government implemented the idea and thus British Summertime or BST was born.

To some BST is an excellent excuse to be late for work on the first Monday after the change. To City Centre Recruitment, with offices in Yeovil, Weymouth, Bournemouth and Southampton, BST means the start of our summer season.

From all our offices we supply temporary seasonal jobs such as beach cleaning jobs in Bournemouth and Weymouth, gardening jobs in Yeovil and Weymouth, Cleaning Jobs in Bournemouth.

All four of our offices are now recruiting for all types of summer jobs in Somerset, Hampshire and Dorset.
