Hi Caloona 🙂

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. 

The area itself should be 18 however without a full postcode I can't confirm this. 

Give 18 a try and if you have issues, post back here with your full postcode and I can check again 🙂

What is my area reference? I live in Newcastle under lyme ST5 7HD. 

I had a letter through the post with my account number and what I assumed to be my area reference (which was 21 in very small text ) but these numbers won't let me register.
