Jessica's artwork at Downing Street

Portchester Crematorium

Work set to start this summer on upgrade to Portchester Crematorium

A 13-YEAR-OLD schoolgirl's artwork took pride of place in the waiting room of Number 10 Downing Street.

Jessica Momen, a pupil at Bridgemary Community Sports College, in Gosport, won a prize for her age category (12 to 16 years) to create a piece of art representing 'Healthy Living'.

She decided to do a colourful collage of fruits mixed with sports equipment – and was delighted to see it hanging on the wall of London's most famous residence.

Reflecting on her VIP visit, she said: 'I went a few months later with my mum Melanie Gee and we met Samantha Cameron who gave us a tour of the very historical building.

'Samantha Cameron was a very nice and down to earth, it was a very exciting day for me and my mum.'

Jessica's art and design teacher Emma Cairns said: 'It's not every day a student gets the opportunity to go to Downing Street to meet the prime minister's wife.'
