Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!
Event:
New friends, an ol’ chinwag and a cuppa
From 'Woop-Woop' to 'Timbuktu' and everywhere in between, Scone Time is taking off like a wild steam train, with local communities jumping on board in support of local Sunshine Coast Foodie, Martin Duncan, the powerhouse behind Scone Time - a community morning tea held every month at various venues around the Sunshine Coast.

After watching an interview with a 96 year old UK resident, who, with no family remaining, decided to involve herself with a local charity that hosted tea parties for seniors, Martin Duncan, renowned Sunshine Coast Foodie, realised that isolation with the elderly is a worldwide issue. Add to that, the many heritage community halls on the Sunshine Coast, that in their heyday used to come alive on Saturday nights for dances, special events and weddings and voilà, the dawning of an innovative union - creating social experiences for the 'young-at-heart', in unique historical locations.

Scone Time initially started in 2018 in the Cooroy Memorial Hall and today is an established, successful event with strong, regular attendance. Scone Time has subsequently moved onto Montville Village Hall, Bankfoot House in the Glass House Mountains, Caloundra and Nambour Tram Terminus, ensuring that all local residents can participate in a fun monthly social outing and a good ol' chinwag. Besides breathing life into historical 'old' buildings, Scone Time helps the 'never-too-old' to feel more connected to their community.

And now we are being blessed with another new location for Scone Time, to be held in Buderim at the historical War Memorial Hall. With Buderim Ginger, The Ginger Factory, 4556 Chamber of Commerce, Aimee Provence, Strawberry Fields, Montville Coffee and the Free Ranging Chef contributing to rocking out the scones, Scone Time in Buderim is going to be kicking off to a fabulous start of decadently divine fresh scones, jam and lashings of delectable whipped cream.

Local companies are invited to contribute financially to help subsidise the cost of a Scone Time monthly gathering in their local area. Alternatively, local business can donate time (volunteering or table hosting) or simply pay it forward for a guest (and carer) to attend one of these social get-togethers, as a one-off attendance. By involving local companies, it is hoped that these events will generate a positive social outcome in the community and enough income to cover the running costs, to ensure ongoing success.

Now, that's what I call an event. Scones, jam and cream. It can't get any better. A great initiative.

Brilliant idea...love it. Would be also good to have local kiddos serving and mingling as well (maybe homeschool group members on the coast?)
