If at first you don’t succeed … try and try again

Sadly, the primer on the Aitken Memorial Fountain has failed, which has caused the fountain to rust, but as Robert the Bruce once said “If at first you don’t succeed … try and try again”. So, that’s just what we are going to do. On Monday 16th December, the fountain will be dismantled and transported to a top conservator to be stripped back and repainted, using the same colours and gold leaf details. The fountain will return in February 2014. Although Govan Cross will be without its unique landmark for 2 months, once returned it will remain there for many future generations to enjoy.
