Reader Treats Just For You!

Thank you for voting!

Thousands of nominations have been whittled down to five finalists in each of the 24 categories – now it's up to you to decide the winners!

First of all, a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who’s taken part in the Muddy Stiletto Awards so far !
Yet again, we’ve been blown away by the sheer volume of amazing independent businesses in Somerset and Bath – there are so many talented, entrepreneurial people out there!  Many categories were extremely hotly contested, so commiserations if you didn’t make it and congratulations to the five businesses in each of the 24 categories who’ve got through to the Finals.

Voting for the Finals is now open and ends at midday on Wednesday 22 May.

So if you love a local business and want to give it a pat on the back, head to the Awards site and do your bit before it slips your mind (yeah, I know what you’re like) because the Finalist with the most votes will be crowned Winner.

Right, that’s enough blather from me. Time to meet the Finalists. Who gets your vote?
