A POTTED History OF THE MILL BC

A group of workers from a local engineering company got together in 1942 with the purpose of bowling in the evening after work. It was believed that the men worked in the milling room hence the name. There was also a water mill in existence in Ruislip, which may have influenced the choice of name. In 2017 we celebrate our 75th Anniversary.

So far as honours are concerned we were winners of the Harrow and District Bowling Association Bidgood League Division Two in 2006 and were champions of League One in 2000, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
