Moving to London: What are the simplest & quickest ways to obtain a proof of address letter?

After a couple of years of planning, saving & preparation, I've finally made the move to the UK (specifically London). I'm a dual-passport holder (and by extension, citizen) of both Australia & the United Kingdom which has made a number of things quite easy so far.
However I've quickly discovered the joys of the British bureaucracy while trying to establish an NI number & bank account. At the moment I'm staying with a friend on & off for a month or so until I've done some travelling & eventually find my own place. How can I get a "proof of address" when I don't have a permanent address yet? Also, how can I get this cheaply!
It all very much seems like a chicken & egg scenario... Can anyone help?
P.S. As an aside.. having just moved, I'd love to know any tips for finding great local online communities & ways to meet people. Twitter meetups, or other similar types of events have worked well for me in the past to make new friends and I'd love to find something similar in London.
Thanks for all your help! :)
