Subject: Helen Birdsall On UFO MAGAZINE UK

I would firstly like to apologise to all our readers,
subscribers, contributors and friends who have had to find out
about the closure of UFO Magazine from second hand information.

My mother Christine and I had no knowledge that Philip Mantle
had spoken on behalf of us, he had no authority to do so and
letters are being sent out to officially let everyone know about
the closure as we speak.

Our staff are indeed upset by the decision to close the magazine
but they are certainly not surprised. I'm sure that you can
understand that UFO Magazine is a family run business and we
feel we can no longer run it without the main member of our
family being here..

Regarding the statement 'It's a sad day today and I'm only sorry
for Graham Birdsall that this has happened'

Firstly the only people that can speak for my father is us, yes
the magazine was my Dads life, but his priority was always his
family and there is no way that he would want us to continue if
he knew how unhappy it was making us.

It is a very sad day, we have made some amazing friends whilst
involved in this subject and had the best time along the way but
I hope that you will all understand and most importantly respect
our decision to no longer continue.

Thank you for all your support

Helen and Christine Birdsall
