Rotherham, England 11:5 am GMT December 31st 2016
The other Rotherham, a village in the Hurunui District of Canterbury Region on New Zealand's South Island is already there. Thirteen hours ahead of the UK and among the first places dipping a toe into 2017 with the rest of us not far behind.
Whatever 2016 brought for you, may the new year be the start of something more beautiful.
Here's to you all, wherever you may be, a Happy New Year.
