New Year's Eve Skyworks celebrations sees Wagga welcome 2018 with a bang

From sporting victories to royal gossip, New Year’s Eve party goers had some colourful ideas about where 2018 might take us. 

“I think Meghan Markle will be pregnant by the end of the year,” Anne O’Connor from Wagga said.

Dawn Lewis from Wagga said she hopes the new year is a healthy one. 

Rhys Dever from the Lake Albert Rural Fire Service has his 2018 pretty much mapped out already. 

"I’m doing a bush walk to raise money for assistance dogs and will become a full member for the RFS Lake Albert,” Mr Dever said. 

“There’s always more for me.” 

Madeline O’Callaghan marked a serious milestone in 2017, starting school at Leeton Public. 

“My best thing was I got to meet my teacher and her name is Mrs Fraser,” Madeline said. 

Coolamon’s Malcolm McKenzie had sport on the brain.

“The mighty Bulldogs will win the NRL grand final,” he said (he’s about 75 per cent sure).

Wagga’s Ryan Hilder had a huge year with the Scouts and intends to keep the momentum going. 

“It’s going to be my second last year in scouts before I move up to Venturers,” he said.
