Thursday Socks

Come on you sockmobbers... join us for an urban walk in Central London: along the way we'll be meeting and chatting to our street friends, giving out socks, blankets and other stuff and generally shootin' the breeze...  After an hour or so we'll retire to a local pub for a drink and a chat.

The sockmob will be kicking off as per usual at 7pm - the areas we'd like to cover are:

Strand - meet by McDonald's just along from Charing Cross tube on the Strand
Waterloo - meet outside McDonald's on the lowest level of the station concourse i.e. the Waterloo Road level
Victoria - meet outside the large WH Smiths opposite the flower stall in the centre of the station concourse
Green Park & Piccadilly - Meet outside Marks and Spencers Simply Food at Green Park Tube station.

This page has some budget maps of the exact locations if you're confused.

Please mention when you select 'I'm going' which area(s) you'd prefer to go to and I'll do my best to put you in your preferred area. Feel free to suggest other areas as well as those listed!

A couple of FAQs:

Do I need to bring anything with me?
An open mind & a willingness to chat to the homeless people we meet along the way is all that's required; however, items such as food, books, toiletries and warm clothing are always appreciated...

Can I choose which area I go to?
Sure - please mention when you select 'I'm going' which area(s) you'd prefer to go to and I'll do my best to put you in your preferred area.

I've never done this before...
No worries: mention in the comment box that appears when you select 'I'm going' that you're new to Sockmob & you'll be put with an experienced mobber. New mobbers are welcome to email any of the organisers with any questions.

For further information about the Sock Mob click on the pages tab above for more FAQs.

I'll post details of who is where & the pub details closer to the day.

    Hi Maggie. Is it possible to swap with someone at the Strand. It's much more convenient for me. Thank you.

    Hi! I am new and instantly fell in love with this cause. :) If at all possible, I would prefer to meet at the Waterloo area. However, any group will be okay!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
