Woo hoo! Meet the 2019 Muddy Awards Winners!

That’s it people. The Muddy Awards have come a glorious end after another fast, frantic and terribly exciting finish.

Thank you so very much to all the many thousands of you who supported the brilliant indie businesses across Glos, and thank you also to the Finalists, all of whom would have made worthy winners. We really are so lucky to have such wonderful independent business in Glos – and such supportive and loyal communities who get behind them. For that, I say we give a big cheer to everyone.

Right then, enough blathering on from me. WHO WON?

Raise your glasses as you read please – and meet your 2019 Muddy Awards Glos winners. Make sure you visit them next time you’re passing and see what all the fuss is about!
