Speeches at the ready…

Meet the winners of the Somerset Muddy Stilettos Awards 2017

The Muddy Stilettos Awards 2017 romped to a close last Friday with thousands upon thousands of you supporting the local businesses you love the most.

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. At its peak, this year’s Awards saw over 400 of you voting every second (shall we just think about that?!), and more than 12,000 of you voted in the Somerset Awards across 27 lifestyle categories, showing how much we all appreciate independence and creativity.

From yours truly – knackered and sluggish – 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?! All fabulous and worthy of your applause and hopefully quite a few businesses you don’t already know about. Let me know if you make it any of them and over and out with my Awards hat until 2018!

    I am so pleased for the Mcmillan theatre as it is a great local venue with a mixture of shows.
