Linking heritage and regeneration
The B listed Aitken Memorial
Fountain is an important Govan landmark which has fallen into
disrepair in recent years. It has now been taken away to be
fully restored to its former glory.
The fountain's missing Cherub, known to most Govanites as the
"Govan Baby", disappeared over 20 years ago. The Govan Baby will be
returned as part of the restoration works.
The drawings shown here were created by pupils at Hills Trust
primary school as part of a workshop about the fountain.
The restoration is part of the regeneration of Govan
Cross, which is currently under way.
