Clocks change this weekend!

We have created a template MyCouncillor story and an email that can be sent to your contacts to remind them that clocks spring forward by one hour at 1am this Sunday (26 March). It’s also an ideal time to check your fire alarm battery too.

The clock change also means more daylight hours for canvassing!

Email template – Word.
