Bland Shire in NSW invited to join international league with towns Dull and Boring

A local council in the central west of New South Wales has been invited to take the next step in establishing a Dull and Boring tourism partnership.

Bland Shire, based in West Wyalong, started exploring potential sister-city relationships with Boring in the United States and Dull in Scotland six months ago.

It has now been invited to join an international league of extraordinary communities with other cities with dreary names.

The towns of Boring and Dull already have a pairing relationship that has led to residents linking up via social media.

Steve Bates of the Boring Community Planning Organisation (BCPO) says after a formal request was received, the idea was put to Dull’s community council.

The BCPO officially formed the league on 5 November and has now extended an invitation to Bland Shire — via redwolf.newsvine.com
