THERE must be something in the water at Brassall, with the suburb's second resident celebrating their 104th birthday this week.

Eva Schmidt marked the milestone yesterday surrounded by some of her family and friends.

Mrs Schmidt said there were no hidden secrets that had let her live to such a ripe old age.

"There are no secrets. I just keep on living and take things as they come," she said.

The gathering at Brassall Village came as a surprise to Mrs Schmidt, who wasn't expecting such a large party.

"It's lovely. I have a good family; they are all good to me and my friends, they are all good to me.

"This is very good. It was a bit of a surprise."

She was presented with flowers by Cr Cheryl Bromage.
