You voted in your thousands and we're super-proud to bring you your shiny new winners!

The Muddy Stilettos Awards 2018 romped to a close on Friday with thousands of you supporting the local businesses you love the most.

If you’re a regular reader (or voter!) you’ll know that The Muddy Awards are free to all and run as a good-natured, positive celebration of the most brilliant, unique and unmissable businesses across the Muddy counties. Thousands of you voted in the Cornwall Awards across 24 lifestyle categories, showing how much we all appreciate independence and creativity.

From yours truly, it’s a heartfelt and whopping great THANK YOU and multiple love emojis to everyone who took part or voted.

But enough from me. Want to meet your winners? All fabulous and worthy of your applause and hopefully quite a few businesses you don’t already know about, so you can use them to plan your fun for the rest of 2018!
