My campaign to delay the start of daylight saving has a Facebook Group.
On it I say:
Extending daylight saving so it starts in September and ends in April was a mistake.
We’ve just had the spring solstice which means there’s only 12 hours between sunrise and sunset. Putting the clocks forward to move sunset from 6ish to 7ish in the evening means sunrise moves from 6ish to 7ish in the morning.
It’s too late to do anything this year – but if there was enough support it could be changed from next year.
If the change to daylight saving was delayed until mid to late October there’d be 14 hours between sunrise and sunset. We’d get more light at both ends of the day and it should be warm enough to be outside.
The Royal Astronomical Society has sunrise and sunset times for Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.
LINZ has sunrise and sunset times for Auckland, Bluff, Dunedin, East Cape, Gisborne & Lyttelton.
