Finalists

You’ve voted, we’ve counted (and counted, and counted) and the Muddy Awards Finals, in association with Healthily and our local partner Gloucester Quays, are LIVE!

A massive THANK YOU for taking the time to support your awesome local businesses this year – over 500,000 of you nominated in the first round of the Awards and, frankly, the response has blown our socks off. And, whilst we wish every brilliant business nominated could make it through, there can only be five finalists in each category and it’s up to you to decide who wins the coveted Regional Award. Each Regional winner will also be considered for the first ever National Muddy Awards to find the ‘best of the best’ across all 28 Muddy counties – so there’s even more reason to show your support this year.

The Awards close on 15 June 2022 at 5pm – so if there’s a business you love, make sure you VOTE HERE.

OK, you want to see who made it through? Course you do! Meet your worthy Gloucestershire and Worcestershire Finalists:

Got that? Now GO FORTH AND VOTE!
