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:
Make new friends and enjoy a cuppa in a heritage location
Have you attended a Scone Time Social Event on the Sunshine Coast yet? If not, read all about this awesomely big-hearted gesture by a local Sunshine Coast foodie, who is the dynamo behind local Scone Times, the community morning teas that are taking off like wild steam trains, at various venues around the Sunshine Coast.

Freshly baked homemade scones, dollops of fresh cream and yummy jam!

Martin Duncan, also known as the Sunshine Coast Foodie, initially got the idea for Scone Time from a video that popped up on his Facebook feed about a young 96-year-old UK resident, who, with no family remaining, decided to involve herself with a local charity that hosted tea parties for young-at-hearts. These monthly catch-ups made total sense, providing 'treasures' as Martin likes to call seniors, with a regular 'date' to look forward to and thus reducing the feelings of loneliness and isolation that seniors worldwide may, at some point in their lives, experience.

Providing 'treasures' with monthly dates

Add to this magnanimous idea the fact that the Sunshine Coast's towns and villages all have fabulous community halls, that in their heyday would come alive on Saturday nights for dances, special events and weddings and voilą, the dawning of a very creative union - the launch of very affordable social experiences for the young at heart, in unique historical locations.

The Sunshine Coast Foodie firmly believes that everyone has a connection to scones and has always used his scones to connect people.
