Bean Dowell

"Bean" Dowell.

Living in Fore Street, Winsham is a man whose real name is Lindsay Dowell but who is known to us all as "Bean". He is not sure when he acquired the nickname but it has stuck and that is how most people know him.

He had always been someone who could turn his hand to anything. Two years ago he was made redundant from Keytec and soon found that he could get work as a gardener and handyman. Also there were many people in Winsham who needed help with their gardens.

He is now fully employed both in the village and beyond. He will tackle anything from a patio to tidying a flower bed in the churchyard. Some of the gardens at Leigh House have been landscaped by him.
