A toast to the Muddy Awards finalists

It has been a massive task of bean counting to work out the finalists in this year’s Muddy Stilettos Awards but we have our shortlist: 135 brilliant businesses in 27 categories

It has been a massive task of bean counting to work out the finalists in this year’s Muddy Stilettos Awards but we have our shortlist. So raise your glass please for the Muddy Awards finalists: 135 brilliant businesses in 27 categories.

A big thanks to those of you who have already voted, and for the many businesses involved.

There are loads of amazing Surrey businesses to vote for from all over the county, which makes it really exciting! But I feel conflicted today as I’m obviously delighted for the businesses who go through, but also seriously gutted for those don’t. If you didn’t make it to the final, then I hope 2018 is your year.

Voting in the Finals starts at midday on Wednesday 7 June and goes for one week only until midday Wednesday 14 June.
