Bedford’s independent businesses are celebrating being nominated in this year’s Muddy Stilettos awards.
The awards have seen nominations for Pavilion in the Park, épanoui, Secret Garden, Made in Bedford, Vanilla Tree and Bears and Tales.
Muddy Stilettos is an award-winning website which gives its readers an ‘urban guide to the countryside’. It was established in Buckinghamshire in 2011 and is now active in 21 counties throughout the country.
“Bedfordshire joined our exiting Hertfordshire site in January 2019,” said Muddy Stiletto’s Katrina Harper-Lewis.
“We specialise in searching out the most special, unique, exciting businesses in Herts and Bedfordshire and to win a Muddy Award provides real kudos and can transform local businesses.”
The awards cover 24 lifestyle categories and anyone can nominate their favourite local business.
From bookshops to delis, photographers to pilates instructors, we’d encourage Bedfordians to get nominating here.
Following the nominations process, the top five businesses with the most nominations in each category will go into the final. Nominations close on 8 May and finalists will be announced on 15 May.
Good luck to all Bedford businesses that are nominted and we look forward to reporting on some local finalists later this month.
