We provide an RSS web feed for our news services.
RSS feeds offer an easy way to keep up with Hounslow Council and what's going on in the borough throughout the day.
They automatically update as new stories are added, flagging up what's new as it breaks.
Details of what RSS is, and how you can get an RSS reader are available in our RSS Help section below.
What is RSS?
RSS is short for Really Simple Syndication. It's an XML file that can be read by special feed reading software or a web service you can use from your web browser. Put the address of one of our web feeds into your reader, and it will display the latest headlines, each one with a synopsis and link that will take you to the full story.
That means you can stay in touch with many different sources of news and information. It's quicker than revisiting a site several times a day to check for updates, and rather than having to look for new headlines, feed readers scan for updates and display them for you.
How to use RSS feeds?
To view our web feeds you need software called a news reader, feed reader or aggregator.
Most sites that offer RSS feeds use a similar orange RSS button, but some may just have a normal web link to the feed.
Some browsers automatically check for RSS feeds for you when you visit a website, and display an icon when they find one. This can make subscribing to RSS feeds much easier. For more details on these, please check their websites.
Once you have installed a feed reader you can add the Hounslow Council RSS feed by clicking on the web feed link
Setting up a feed differs from one aggregator to another, but it usually involves dragging the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader or cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your news reader.
