Keeping in touch with club news

This is rather a techie post, but I can't believe that I am the only person who uses RSS newsfeeds to keep an eye on whats going on around the net.

For those not in the know most news sites and blogs have newsfeeds - RSS, Atom or whatever. This one does (you can set one up using the "subscribe to newsfeed" link in the right-hand column). With a feedreader (iGoogle being my favourite) you can have the headlines from all your favourite news sources on one page, and be able to see at a glance when something new has been published instead of having to remember to visit dozens of sites individually.

Anyway... one important website that does not have any form of newsfeed (despite being a blog-type site) is the main Letchworth Rugby Club website. Unless you visit the site every day you risk missing something.

Well, not any more. The latest headlines from the main club news page, plus the calendar and Dave Sharp's chairman's blog, now appear on the left (any other pages that we should be watching?). It uses a service called Page2RSS which allows you to create a newsfeed from almost any webpage. Its not perfect, but its better than no link at all - and this way it means you will never miss a club AGM again!

If you want to add the feeds to your own reader, try these links:
