    DRINKING fountains were built in the 1850s to stop dockers from spending too much time in the pub.

    And now more than 250 schoolchildren are helping to give the Victorian Melly fountains a new lease of life.

    Primary schools in south Liverpool have got involved in the plans to restore the first fountain, in Woolton Road.

    Terry Chapman, of United Utilities, said: "We wanted to leave a lasting legacy to the city after 2008, and this seemed like an ideal opportunity.

    When these fountains were first introduced in the 1850s, it was a tremendous breakthrough in public health, and these are beautiful civic monuments in their own right which deserve to be restored."

    Plans started 18 months ago, when Liverpool City Council and the Friends of Liverpool Monuments decided which fountains to restore.

    Many had been lying uncared for and vandalised for decades, and organisers decided the local community would be the key to any restoration plans.

    Dilys Horwich, Liverpool Culture Company learning and outreach officer, said: "We knew this would be more than just a restoration project, and that it would be important for local people to feel a sense of ownership of the fountains."

    Drinking fountains were first introduced in Liverpool in 1854 by Tuebrook man Charles Pierre Melly, an ancestor of famed jazz musician George Melly.

    He had seen public drinking fountains in Geneva and seen their health benefits.

    He described the problems in Liverpool where dockers could only get a drink in the local pubs "where they were expected to pay for a stronger and less refreshing drink than they required".

    Melly noted some were in such distress, they were glad enough to drink at the horse trough.

    He initially invested 500 of his own money and installed 43 drinking fountains around the area between 1854 and 1858.

    Mr Chapman has designed prototypes for some new drinking fountains, which were used in pupils' science lessons.

    Meanwhile, music teacher Gerry Harrison helped children create their own music using water.

    These are located on the Harthill Road side of Calderstones Park, a grand entrance gate with four large statues that apparently represent the four seasons.
