At 2am on Sunday 29th Oct, the clocks will revert back to GMT - so 2am will immediately become 1am.
What does this mean?
You get the hour in bed back that was stolen in the spring; George Wright will be stuck in an infinite loop of the Macarena until spring ; AND MOST IMPORTANTLY - all of your availability in the CT system will need to reflect GMT from the above date/time: 18:30z is now 6.30pm local
19:30z = 7.30pm local
21:30z = 9.30pm local
12:00z = 12pm (midday local)
00:00z = 12am (midnight local)

Please note that the clocks will advance one hour at 1am Sunday 26th March for the start of BST. This means we effectively lose 1am altogether as it immediately becomes 2am and therefore also become bereft of that extra sleep we were all enjoying .
You will need to apply the following logic when making bookings or entering in availability for sessions:
18:00z = 7pm (BST) local
00:00z = 1am (BST) local
