The Fantastic Five (x27)

Who's in the #MuddyAwards17 finals?

 

Has your fave business got through? Has it? Read on!

OMG! It’s been a massive task of bean counting to work out who the finalists in this year’s Muddy Stilettos Awards are but we have our shortlist – 135 businesses in 27 categories, all vying for your love! I counted out an enormous 6,000 votes (yes, 6,000!) in the first round of the Muddy Awards. 

A huuuuge THANK YOU for taking the time to vote and support your awesome local businesses and congrats to the worthy Finalists.

The Finals kick off this Wednesday at midday, with voting live on the blog so you can see who’s in the lead. This year it’s just one week of voting for your faves so if there’s a business you super-love, make sure you super-vote!

There are loads of BRILLIANT Warwickshire businesses to vote for and they are already throwing everything at it, which makes it so exciting!

I feel really conflicted today as I’m obviously delighted for the businesses which go through but seriously gutted for those who don’t. If you didn’t make it through, then I hope 2018 is your year. Anyway, check out all the finalists below and make sure you go and visit them – after you’ve voted, of course!
