And finally….

To round off the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2017: a very pink Winners' Drinks bash at The Castle Hotel in Taunton

Just a quick final post on the Muddy Awards. Many thanks to The Castle Hotel in Taunton who not only won Best Bar but also hosted a superb Winners’ Drinks bash earlier this week. Had there been a prize for Somerset’s Best Frontage, that would have been in the bag too.

Suave staff served up ice cold fizz, a veritable cornucopia of canapes, dips and mixed olives in the Pretty in Bright Pink Wisteria Room, yours truly got to meet lots of awesome winners, hand out winners’ certificates and natty little window stickers. Best Florist Kathryn Delve of Bespoke Blooms surprised everyone by arriving with a couple of crates of floral favours for everyone – a lovely touch – thank you! And thanks also to Best Photographer Tessa Chapman who had her camera to hand and took some fab photos (which is why she’s missing from the group pic below).

Just some of the winners, clockwise, from L to R: Sam & Olly (River House Frome); Tessa Chapman (Tessa Chapman Photography); Jessica & Jon (Contains Art); Adam & Marc Castle Hotel); Martin & Anna (Anna Davies Yoga); Emma & Susan (Lafleure); Lindsay (Pura Vida Holistic Therapies); Louise & Sam (Buff Urban Day Spa)

Thanks once again to everyone who came along and to all our winners, finalists and voters…until next year!
