The Muddy Awards 2016 winners!

Award buttons 2016 Master - Bucks & Oxon_winner

The Muddy Awards 16 are over and what a romp that was! Thank you so very much to all the many thousands of you who supported the brilliant indie businesses in the area, and thank you also to the Finalists, all of whom would have made worthy winners.

It’s been really interesting this year to see some new businesses popping up – Faringdon and Aylesbury are two areas that seem to have indie stirrings! Le Manoir was toppled from Best Restaurant, a cool new menswear shop has emerged and there are plenty other surprises, along with some welcome repeat winners.

Anyhoo, you can see all the winners for yourself below. Go visit them next time you’re passing by and see what all the fuss is about!
