Rutland businesses are in the running for Muddy Stiletto awards
A raft of businesses are in the running for a title at this year’s Muddy Stiletto Awards.
Now in its eighth year, the awards celebrate small independent businesses.
Muddy Stilettos is one of the biggest lifestyle websites outside of London, helping more than 500,000 women a month make the most of where they live.
The 2019 awards attracted 15,000 nominations across 25 counties.
An awards spokesman said: “We don’t need to tell you how challenging the last year has been for so many. As we finally come out of lockdown, many of the businesses we love have now re-grouped, re-invented and re-opened so we are excited to host the 2021 Muddy Awards to acknowledge their hard work, bravery and stellar achievements in such an unprecedented year.”
