CREATIVE Year 6 pupils have sent a message directly to David Cameron after an alcohol-awareness performance won friends in high places.

Baroness Newlove, the Government's champion for active, safer communities, was so impressed with a rap written and performed by Banstead Community Junior School pupils, she asked for it to be produced on DVD so she could show it to the Prime Minister.

Baroness Helen Newlove, who became a community campaigner after her husband Garry was murdered by a gang outside their Warrington home in 2007, was among dignitaries to visit the school in The Horseshoe last Wednesday.

Year 6 pupils put on a 20-minute show featuring drama, role-plays and the rap.

The audience included parents, the Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey, Dame Sarah Goad, the High Sheriff of Surrey, Karin Sehmer, and deputy mayor of Reigate and Banstead, Alexander Horwood.

Head teacher Steve Scott said: "They all said what a fantastic performance it was.

"I was really proud of the school.

"It was absolutely amazing – and the message is going all the way back to the Prime Minister.

"Baroness Newlove is going to talk on this in the House of Lords, and to the PM, about the message we were giving.

"And she wants to have a DVD of our children doing their rap."
