    Rutland doesn’t seem very well represented

      Hi Sue! There were so many Rutland-based businesses that were nominated and made it in to the Finals but they didn’t get as many votes to win and the voting is down to the public.
      Next year I hope to see Rutland take over the Awards as there are so many fab businesses there which I try and feature as you’ll see by reading the blog. If you know of any, do share the love and let me know and I can explore a little further!
