Woohoo – Your Muddy Awards 2019 Winners!

The votes have been counted and verified. Charge your glasses and drum roll please…

That’s it, the Muddy Awards 2019 are officially over!

You came and voted in your thousands – the level of interest this year has been unprecedented and it just goes to show how much you lot love all things local. So a big ruddy muddy thank you to everyone who nominated/voted for their favourite independent businesses across the 24 categories.

It has been fantastic to see so many creative social media posts flying around. The last month has been totally bonkers and I’ve loved every minute of it. Thank you all so much for taking part.

There’s clearly a lot of love for all our winners and finalists, so worth checking them out in person and seeing if you agree.
