Your votes have been counted and – drumroll please – the results are in. Here are your Muddy Awards 2022 winners. Go say hi, they’re local you know!
Oooh, well that was FUN!
The Muddy Stilettos Awards 2022 romped to a close last week, the culmination of six weeks of cheer-leading, sharing the love and voting for the most brilliant local businesses across 28 Muddy counties, in partnership with our fab national sponsor Healthily. This year, an astonishing 75,000 businesses nominated and 765,000 votes cast in 2022. I know, bonkers!
The Muddy Awards are proudly free for all businesses to take part in from beginning to end – we never want small or new businesses to be excluded on the basis of cost. And nine years on from the first Awards, it’s still as exciting as ever to shine a light on brilliant businesses that often go undiscovered and unrecognised.
But these are Awards voted for by Muddy readers, not editors, so it’s a heartfelt and whopping great THANK YOU from me to all of you who took part or voted in 2022.
And with no further ado, allow me to introduce your winners for 2022 across Norfolk. All incredible and worthy of a visit – so print off this list (or save to your favourites on Muddy if you’re signed in) and work your way through them until we go again next year!
