Drum roll please…Muddy Awards 2017 winners announced

The votes have been counted and verified. The 2017 Muddy Awards winners are…

 wonderful Leicestershire based businesses! They are one of this year’s very (VERY) deserving Muddy Stilettos’ Awards winners! Thank you all so much for taking part and tweeting/Facebooking/shouting from the rooftops and generally getting VERY involved. A big up to our deserving finalists too! Competition this year was fierce, everyone involved should be very proud of what they’ve achieved.

The response to the Awards this year has been incredible, with up to 100,000 people per day voting across the Muddy Stilettos sites and over 250,000 votes cast – awareness of the brand has gone bonkers! The ethos of Muddy Stilettos is all about celebrating and supporting the most unique, interesting, brilliant local businesses, and we hope that this award will give businesses a real boost.

I won’t go on, because let’s face it, I’ve been going on for the last few weeks, but winners and details of the spanky celebratory drinks next week are all below *drum roll please…
