Did you get to watch Scone Time on Landline? If not, read all about this fabulously generous community commitment gesture by a local Sunshine Coast foodie.

After seeing 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 seniors is a worldwide issue. Add to that the numerous community halls on the Sunshine Coast, that in their heyday used to come alive on Saturday nights for dances, special events and weddings and voilą, 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 then moved onto Montville Village Hall, ensuring that residents of Montville and surrounds also have the pleasure of a monthly social outing. Besides breathing life into historical 'old' buildings, Scone Time helps older folks to feel more connected to their community.

Local business is 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 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 this event will generate a positive social outcome in the community and enough income to cover the runnings costs, to ensure ongoing success.

Here are the next eight Scone Time and one Scone-off Afternoon Tea social events on the Sunshine Coast calendar -
