The Sidney Sister Cities Association claimed an award from Sidney Mayor Larry Cross last week.

Cross presented Lesley Nicholls, chair of the Cairns Committee of the association, an award from Sister Cities Australia.

At its annual conference, Sister Cities Australia gives awards for noteworthy projects carried out by its members. Last year, Cairns, one of Sidney's three Sister Cities, received the award for the best single project. In addition to the award to Cairns, each sister city received a copy of the award in acknowledgement of their role in the project. The award to Cairns was for the excellent fibre arts exhibition staged in Cairns. Each of Cairns seven sister cities, including Sidney, sent fabric artwork which was on display for a number of weeks.
