Businesses in district celebrate success at Muddy Stilettos Awards

WINNERS of the annual Muddy Stilettos Awards have celebrated taking the top spot.

A total of 27 local, independent businesses won the coveted lifestyle awards across Warwickshire and the West Midlands which were this year sponsored by Birmingham Airport.

Readers voted for their favourite local businesses in categories including best destination pub, wedding venue, and yoga studio.

Winners in Stratford district included best art space for Compton Verney, boutique stay for Beverley Thrills Caraglamping, Suzanne Evetts as best florist and readers also voted Arrow Mill best pub and the RSC best theatre.

Winners celebrated at an awards reception held at Wootton Park Retreats in Wootton Wawen.

Muddy Stilettos Warwickshire and West Midlands editor Laura Kearns said: “The response to this year’s Muddy Awards has been astonishing with 75,000 businesses nominated and some 760,000 votes cast across the counties. It’s given such a fantastic boost and a well-deserved pat-on-the-back to so many.

“It was great to celebrate with the winners and I hope this award will give them even greater confidence to keep persevering, growing and being creative.”
