Can anyone tell me if there is a service available which allows me to receive a notification every time someone updates an area?

You can use OWL (more info here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OWL_%28OpenStreetMap_Watch_List%29 ) and the service from ITOWorld (more info here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_Mapper ).

Both services are delayed in showing what has changed, both provide an RSS feed for a specified area.

Note that OWL currently has a very long delay, about 20 days for me. Efforts are underway to integrate OWL into OpenStreetMap.org, and presumably performance will improve at that point.
