THE lighter nights are nearly upon us.

Later this month, the time will come to change the clocks.

This year, people should put their clocks forward one hour at 1am on Sunday, March 25, 2018.

The best way to remember is the phrase 'spring forward, fall back'.

The clocks always go forward an hour on the last weekend in March in spring, and they go back on the final weekend of October in the autumn.

Later this year, the clocks will go back again at 2am on Sunday, October 28, 2018.
