Meet Your Muddy Awards 2018 Winners!
You voted in your thousands and we're super-proud to bring you your shiny new winners!
What a week!
It was fast, furious and a whole lorra fun, but I now declare this year’s Muddy Awards 2018 CLOSED! A massive THANK YOU for taking the time to support your truly brilliant local businesses – I’ve absolutely loved seeing – and feeling- the buzz these past few weeks.
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. Over 20,000 of you voted in Devon across 24 lifestyle categories , showing how much we all appreciate independence and creativity.
The only sad part, of course, is that not everybody can win (I’d give you all a big Muddy hug if I could; I know, what a thought….). But I’m sure that you, like me, have discovered a few new locals that you’ll be wanting to pay a visit the next time you’re in town or scouting about online.
Anyway, without further ado, fancy meeting your winners? Course you do! Congratulations to them all!
