It is well
known that web cams are a source of interest for many users of the internet. Indeed, they are springing up in a number of coastal areas in
particular. The key advantage of
web cams in these locations is the promotion of tourism.
The economy of
Heacham would very much benefit from increasing the number of visitors to the
continues to grow in popularity and visitors to the site are quite likely to
make a visit to the village as a result of what they see on-line.
Real time coverage via a web cam adds to the net surfer’s interest and
with our incredible sunsets to show off as well as attractive areas of the
village this all adds up to a dynamic tourism brochure.
proposes to connect up to three web cams promoting Heacham's best and most interesting
features. Here are some suggested
Sunsets - Possible site would be at North Beach Heacham.
2. High St
- Possible site to cover businesses and events like the annual carnival.
- A camera focused on Hunstanton Rd to take in as much of The Green and
Hunstanton Road as possible would show general village activity and since the
Pocahontas link in the village is connected primarily to the church and
Heacham Hall may be a good spot for a good number of Pocahontas
celebrations/events in 2007.
Bray's Pit - Possible site for camera to view
this popular village feature.
There may be
better locations that have not so far been suggested.
The locations looked at above are as a result of many conversations with
a number of people in the village. The
above is essentially a proposal for consideration by interested parties.
If anyone has any other ideas for the
location of one of the cameras please send us your suggestion
The web cams will take real-time still photos which
up-date/refresh say every 5/10 minutes.
It is hoped
that the costs of purchasing the necessary equipment should come from
community support – i.e. sponsorship and community grants.
