I can never work out which way is forward and which way is backward!  ???

What I can tell you is that the evenings will get lighter, so for example, what is now only 5pm will be 6pm.

It'll also be on the front page under "upcoming events" (just above the boxes showing who's on line towards the bottom of the screen).
Events appear there one week before they're due to happen.
