A LEADING figure in the study of UFOs is to be remembered at a special conference in Runcorn.
Dave Kelly, from Runcorn, who died from cancer in April, was a founding member of the British UFO Studies Centre.
Now members of the group are to remember Dave's hard work and dedication to the cause of solving the mystery of extra terrestrial visits to Earth with a one-day conference at the Waterloo Community Centre in Waterloo Road, Runcorn, on November 17.
Tickets for the event cost £5 with all proceeds going to Cat's Protection, Dave's favourite charity.
The conference will also see the worldwide exclusive showing of film footage of believed UFO visitations and crop circles.
Other subjects under discussion include ghosts and poltergeists, space and time travel and mysteries recorded in Cheshire.
Speakers on the day include UFO writer Tim Matthews, alien abduction researcher Eric Morris, ghost hunter Carolyn Buckley and Steve Jones, who describes himself as a pagan magistrate from Manchester.
Organiser Eric Morris, who will be reflecting on abduction cases reported in the North West during the last couple of years, told the Weekly News: 'Dave worked endlessly for the British UFO Studies Centre and was always happy to remain the the background without taking any applause but giving his time, energy and experience to researching Unidentified Flying Objects.
'It means everything to us to raise funds in Dave's memory for a charity that provides empathy and good loving homes to unwanted cats.'
