Monday mobbing

  • May 27, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Hi Lovely people,

it's the last Monday of the month (yay!) so why not join us for a wander around Central London, along one of our regular routes?  On the way we'll be meeting and chatting to our street friends, giving out socks, blankets and other stuff while getting to know any newcomers, both mobbing and on the street.   After an hour or so we'll retire to a local pub for a drink and a chat.

The Sock Mob will start 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

Piccadilly - Meet outside Boots at Piccadilly Circus

Please state your preferred area when you select 'I'm going', and if possible, which 2 areas (in case we don't have enough sign ups for one of your choices) 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.  If you bring food, please avoid 'hard' foods, like apples, as many of our street friends have dental problems that mean they can only manage softer items.

Can I choose which area I go to?
Sure - please mention when you select 'I'm going' which 2 areas 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 The Sock mob. However, there is always an experienced walk leader/organiser on each route, along with regular mobbers, so there will always be someone who knows the people and the route!  New mobbers are welcome to email any of the organisers with any questions or you can call me on[masked]with any questions you may have.

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.

    Hello there,

    I'm a first timer and just sign up Piccadilly Circus but just found out there's no list of leader/walk of Piccadilly Circus? Should I go other place instead? I should be able to join the one at Victoria.

    Cheers,
    Cyndi

      Cyndi, I don't know if you saw my message under Maggie's list of who is where, but I've had to drop out which means Victoria is slightly short on numbers and I am sure you would be much appreciated as my replacement! Thanks for stepping in!

      thanks for all your response, I'll show up before 7PM at Victoria to join Maggie, see you all then! ^__^

    Hello,

    I don't know if it's too late to register. I'm a tourist from Taiwan and joined 4 Unseen Tours. It'd be delight if I could meet up with you lovely people. I prefer to go Piccadilly Circus. Cheers,
    Cyndi
