William Willett - DST Advocator[/caption]
William Willett, a London builder, was the man behind the idea for daylight saving time (DST) back in 1916 and since then we have changed our clocks backwards and forwards on the last Sunday in March and October to ensure we make the most of daylight!
The clocks have now changed so make sure you double check your meeting time on your confirmation flight line before embarking on your voyage with Virgin Balloon Flights
. To give you a rough idea, here’s the approximate meet times according to the time of year;
Mid March to end March: 07:00AM & 15:30PM
Beginning to mid April: 07:00AM & 17:00PM
Mid April to mid May: 06:30AM & 17:30PM
Mid May to end May: 06:00AM & 18:00PM
June and July: 06:00AM & 18:30PM
Beginning to mid August: 06:00AM & 18:00PM
