Harry MillsHarry Mills

Our son, Harry Mills, died from Meningitis on Thursday the 26th of April 2007 at the age of 11 years. A much loved boy, Harry always had a beaming smile on his face and limitless enthusiasm for sport and life itself. Our family; myself Richard, my wife Judi, daughters Marie and Jenny and son George are devastated by his loss. Harry’s short life was extinguished in a single day by this terrible disease.

Harry seems to have touched so many people. The love and friendship that was his hallmark lives on after his death. It is some comfort to know that through organ donation Harry will have helped others and saved lives.

Meningitis B vaccine is to be approved for the NHS and given to all children along with other vaccines.  Click here to read more on the Meningitis Research Foundation website

 Windy Mills Pickles Now Available at Rebellion Brewery

Steven Smith presented with Harry Mills Team Maker AwardWindy (Harry’s dad) is making Windy Mills pickled onions for the Marlow Rebellion Brewery. Rebellion are kindly making a donation to the Meningitis Research Foundation for each jar purchased.

If you have a penchant towards pickles as it’s a must to go with the cheese on Christmas Day and the cold meats and bubble and squeak on Boxing day, not to mention a culinary heralding in for the New Year then head to the brewery and don’t forget the wonderful beer on offer. Windy has just introduced a hot Chilli pickle to ward off the cold weather. Also available is pickled Beetroot. All are hand pickled to the Windy Mills recipe passed on down the generations and renowned for its sweet flavour.


Playing Football, Rugby and Cricket, Tennis, Athletics and Cross Country, sport was Harry’s life. He played football and rugby for John Hampden Grammar school, Rugby for Marlow RUFC, Cricket for Marlow Park, football for Holy Trinity Juniors Football club and Tennis with Marlow Tennis Club.

At times in between he could be found scoring a try in the lounge at the Mills residence in Marlow, scoring a goal between the TV and Hi-Fi in the kitchen or beating his dad at table tennis or cricket in the garden. Ability and sportsmanship earned Harry a place on the Talented and Gifted Register (government initiative) at John Hampden School.
