Echuca-Moama police have praised the largely incident free revelry that took place over New Year's Eve.KATHLEEN TONINI January 2, 2013 4:54am
New Year’s Eve revellers in Echuca-Moama were generally well behaved.
Echuca police Sergeant Della Nihill said one Echuca woman was locked up for being drunk and disorderly before midnight and another was assaulted outside a Hare St nightclub.
She said there was a scuffle outside the entrance of the nightclub at about 3am Tuesday and the woman was struck on the head and fell to the ground.
The woman was taken to the Echuca hospital.
Police inquires into the incident are pending.
There was also a small grassfire in a Boothman St park, which was believed to be started by a camp fire.
But Sgt Nihill said overall the night was a good one for Echuca police.
There were no incidents involving fireworks, no drink drivers and only a handful of noise complaints, she said.
‘‘Other than that we were very happy with it,’’ Sgt Nihill said.
‘‘It was just a really, really good New Year’s Eve for us.’’
‘‘People were actually quite jovial out on the street.’’
On the other side of the border, celebrations also remained low key, except for one isolated incident.
Deniliquin police Inspector Peter Hayes said two Moama residents were hit by a car while walking into a Moama winery.
Insp. Hayes said the man and woman, whose ages were not known, were walking towards the Perricoota Rd winery about 1.20am Tuesday when a car made contact with them from behind.
Insp. Hayes said the man received a lower-leg injury and the woman suffered grazing and both were taken to Echuca hospital.
He said the car was described as a silver/grey four-wheel drive and appealed to anyone who had any information to contact Moama police.
Overall though, Insp. Hayes said Moama revellers were well behaved.
He said there were lots of parties, but no assaults recorded.
‘‘It was good,’’ he said.
