Woo hoo! Meet the 2019 Muddy Awards Winners!
CONGRATULATIONS to these beautiful Northants based businesses! The Muddy Stilettos Awards 2019 has seen thousands upon thousands of you supporting the local businesses you love the most. The competition this year has been fiercer than ever and everyone involved should be very proud of what they’ve achieved.
If you’re a regular reader (or voter!) you’ll know that The Muddy Awards are free to all and run as a good-natured, positive celebration of the most brilliant, unique and unmissable businesses across the Muddy counties. Northants always gets a brilliant reaction and thousands of you vote across 24 lifestyle categories, showing how much we all appreciate independence and creativity.
From yours truly – a gibbering wreck of an editor, crossed eyed with checking spreadsheets – it’s a heartfelt and whopping great THANK YOU and multiple love emoji to everyone who took part or voted.
But enough blather from me. Want to meet your winners? *drum roll please…
