Vote for your favourite local indie business and say ‘thank you’


Now in their eighth year, The Muddy Stilettos Awards are back with a bang. The most coveted awards for independent small businesses across 25 counties, the Muddies champion the very best lifestyle businesses, chosen by customers and Muddy readers. 

Muddy Stilettos is the biggest lifestyle site outside London – helping 500,000 women every month across 25 counties to make the most of where they live. Last run in 2019, the Muddy Awards attracted 15,000 business nominations and 750,000 votes across the country, and is seen very much as the most prestigious local business awards, providing well deserved publicity and kudos for winners in each and every county.

Sophie Tweedale, Editor of Muddy Stilettos Glos and Worcs, said: “The Muddy Awards are all about championing our incredible, local independents. Now in their eighth year, they were set up to celebrate and shout about the brilliant businesses that are very much the life blood of communities here in Gloucestershire and beyond.

“After a year of multiple lockdowns and hardships it’s a small way of saying thank you to the small coffee shop, fashion boutique or favourite restaurant you always love going to. There are 27 categories to vote for and you can show some love to your favourite place until Friday 23rd July – so get voting! Our awards, and being part of them, are a big deal to small businesses and giving a helping hand to the heroes of our high streets is a big highlight of the year at Muddy Stilettos.

“If you’d like to see who’s made the finalists in Gloucestershire find them here and to please vote head to
