Less than one week to go now actually. Time to sign up again if you’re up for it and can stand a whole hour without your comforts and your TV’s and all your other gadgets – a huge challenge for some I imagine but it’s only an hour so it’s not that much of a hardship. Just look at it as the hour you’re going to lose when we put the clocks forward. Yes, I know that doesn’t add up but don’t let the pesky details deter you.
One hour isn’t going to solve the climate problem and some would argue that it’s nothing more than a gimmick, but it will raise awareness and perhaps it will encourage us to have more lights out hours.
As individuals, it will take no effort. It could be fun. We usually light some candles, get out the nibbles and play board games on the floor. But please, no Monopoly.
