Addresses, house numbers and street numbers should always be written out in full, with the exception of Saint ( St. ) which may be used either way.

Date and time must be spelled out in full.

  • ‘the fifteenth of May’, rather than ‘May 15th’,

  • ‘at two in the afternoon’ rather than ‘ 2:00pm’.

The year should also be spelled out, for example:
