Remember to come between 3 and 3.30. As you are coming to my house on your own the first time, give yourself more time.

Does the part in bold mean that the person addressed to start earlier from wherever they are so that they are able to reach my house at the appointment time? (Please also correct any errors in my question.) Thanks.

Remember to come between 3:00 and 3:30pm. As you are coming to my house, on your own for the first time, adjust your time to reach comfortably at the appointed time.

Just because the writer of an article is British doesn't mean that they use English correctly-DragOnspeaker.
