Queen's Christmas decoration to hold Glastonbury flower

On the Queen's table this Christmas will be a piece of Holy Thorn picked from a tree in Glastonbury.

The annual community event will see infants of St John's School help the mayor of Glastonbury, Edward James, to cut a flowering sprig.

The flower will be cut in a ceremony in St John's church yard on Tuesday, 8 December, 2009 at 10.30am.

Traditionally, the Holy Thorn flowers twice a year, with one being on Christmas Day.

This year all the schools in the area will participate in the event by making musical and spoken contributions.
