Bring on those summer evening barbecues! Daylight savings starts Sunday 28 September, so remember to put your clocks forward before you head to bed on Saturday night.

Summer beach restrictions start for dog owners

It’s also a great time to check if your smoke alarms are working, and replace their batteries if you need to.

Dog owners heading to the beach this weekend should also note it’s the start of summer beach restrictions. No dogs are allowed on the beaches at Balaena Bay, Hataitai Bay, Island Bay, Seatoun Beach, and Worser Bay between 9am and 7pm during national daylight saving hours. For early morning and evening walks, dogs must be on a lead at all times at these beaches (with the exception of Worser Bay).
