New Zealand day­light sav­ing be­gins this Sun­day, Septem­ber 30, when clocks go for­ward an hour at 2am to be­come 3am.

The ex­tra hour of day­light in the evenings will run un­til Sun­day, April 7, 2013, when clocks go back an hour at 3am to 2am.

Peo­ple may find it con­ve­nient to ad­vance their clocks by one hour be­fore go­ing to bed on Satur­day, Septem­ber 29.

The change to day­light sav­ing is also an op­por­tune time for res­i­dents to check their house­hold emer­gency plans, sur­vival kits and home smoke alarms.
