  5. Yes you can but please use the following advice when disposing of knives HOW TO WRAP A KNIFE You can use newspaper or cardboard and you will need some sticky tape. To avoid personal injury, do not handle the sharp bladed edge of the knife.Using a few sheets of newspaper or cardboard, carefully wrap the knife with enough material to prevent it piercing through. Seal carefully with lots of sticky tape. This should prevent it from being easily removed or falling out of its wrapping. The knife must be wrapped or secured in a way that it can't be easily removed or used if you're challenged. GOING TO THE KNIFE BIN Familiarise yourself with the location of the knife bin. If it makes you feel safer, take your knife to the knife bin in daylight hours. Remember!!!!! It is still an offence to have the knife in a public place, but it is reasonable to be in possession of it when it is wrapped up as described and if you are going directly to the weapons bin to dispose of it. REMEMBER Exercise caution. Be safe, not sorry.

  15. I'm trying very hard to find a suitable property in Sheffield. I will be moving into the area with my kids to take up post-grad study and also to transfer my cancer treatment to Weston Park. After finding a property, with Haybrooks, I was more or less coerced into taking it straightaway (potential tenants waiting outside to view while I was viewing), and asked to pay a deposit straight away (to secure the property or one of the potential tenants may take it). Even though it was a weekend, my card details were taken and phoned through to office. After this I had to make the 200 mile return trip after 2 days to bring in id and sign the agreement. I was paying six months rent in advance to speed up the process and secure the property so I could register kids at local schools. I was advised that all references would be taken up straight away and I would receive the offer letter within a few days. Despite these assurances, my character reference was not contacted, and Haybrook failed to ask me to provide an alternative. Is it unreasonable to question the integrity of such an estate agent, who was so quick to take my money (£257) and then not bother chasing up references. They have now refused to return my deposit, even though they know that the whole episode has impacted on my health. I was even advised by them to 'take the property, what's the point in withdrawing when you will have to start the process over again'. This is a matter of principle - and to make matters worse I had submitted an appeal to their lettings department, and surprise, surprise, it has been ignored. So, this is now going to the head office, and I will also be advising the local press. These big companies should not be allowed to intimidate tenants, especially women on their own with children, especially in my case with my serious illness. Shame on you, Haybrooks!
