March brings a flurry of hope and positivity and several reasons to celebrate
l The clocks go forward on the last Sunday of the month, 26 March. No more getting up or coming home from work in the dark – and an extra hour of daylight for evening adventures.
l It’s also Mother’s Day on 26 March, which means a coming-together of families, a showing of appreciation and a great excuse for a slap-up lunch.
l It’s International Day of Happiness on 20 March: do your bit to spread the love with a random act of kindness.
l You can try a range of activities, experiences and events for free or at a low price from 17–20 March as part of new initiative, A Good Weekend. Whether it’s a bike ride, trip to a gallery or a creative workshop, the idea is that you can spend more time doing things that make you happy but not broke; agoodweekend.org.
