Lighter evenings from this Sunday as clocks go forward by one hour

There will be lighter evenings from this Sunday, as we adjust the clocks forward by one hour to welcome the start of summer time in Gozo and Malta.
Winter time officially ends at 2.00am this Sunday morning, the 31st of March, when clocks are adjusted forward by one hour.
The last Sunday of October at 3.00am will mark the end of summer time, which this year falls on the 27th of October.
Earlier this week MEPs voted to end the practice of adjusting clocks by an hour in spring and autumn from 2021, however they voted to postpone the date from 2019 to 2021.
The European Parliament backing of the proposal to end the switch between summer and winter time in 2021, means that EU countries which decide to keep their summer time should make their final clock change on the last Sunday in March 2021.
Those that prefer to keep their standard (winter) time, can adjust their clocks for the final time on the last Sunday in October 2021.
