Muddy Awards 2021 Hampshire Isle of Wight

It’s been a tense few days but this is it – the Finals are LIVE!

You nominated, we counted (and counted, and counted, and counted…) and FINALLY it’s the moment the nation’s been waiting for. No, not the football, not Wimbledon — it’s the Muddy Awards 2021 Finals, people!!

We have to say a massive THANK YOU for taking the time to support your awesome local businesses – over 500,000 of you nominated in the first round of the Awards and, frankly, the response has blown our socks off. While we wish every brilliant business nominated could make it through, there can only be five finalists in each category. So now, dear reader, it’s up to you to decide who wins!

The Muddy Awards 2021 vote closes on Friday 23 July 2021 at 5pm – so if there’s a Hampshire and Isle of Wight business you love, make sure you VOTE HERE!

    I have received the catalogue from the Dressing Room in Australia since Covid began. My favourite buy is a magnificent chequered cardigan which Louisa Keets kindly arranged to be sent to Melbourne for me. I have had so many accolades about it, when wearing it out on our cold Winter mornings at present.
