The Muddy Stilettos Award Winners 2019!
It's been emotional! But after tens of thousands of votes, The Muddy Awards 2019 are over for another year and we have 24 brilliant winners. Want to meet them?
The votes have been counted! The Winners have been chosen – by you – the good people of Kent!
A massive THANK YOU for taking the time to support all that is awesome in our county – thousands and thousands of you voted in the Awards which is just incredible.
I always feel really conflicted when the Muddy Awards Winners are announced because I’m thrilled for the businesses who get gold, but also really sad for those who don’t (what can I say, I’m a big softy). But having had hundreds of businesses nominated in the first round just making it to the final is such an accolade. And all this year’s finalists were very worthy of that title and certainly help make our days a little brighter…
OK, you want to see who WON? Course you do! Meet your worthy Winners. Congratulations to them all!
