Are you an amazing Devon mum or do you know one whose hard work should be recognised? Mumazing Success invites you to nominate yourself or others for a Mumazing Award

The Mumazing Awards, a celebratory event to acknowledge the hard work and achievements of amazing mums in Devon, is fast approaching. Founded and created by inspirational mum Lucy Flanagan, Mumazing Success was a labour of love, born directly from Lucy’s own experience of becoming a mother and feeling lost in her new role; Lucy soon discovered that she was not the only mum seeking emotional support and personal development, and as a result, Lucy created Mumazing Success and the Mumazing Awards to help to empower, support and celebrate the mothers of Devon.

In her own words Lucy describes how “Mumazing mums go on to lead a life free of mummy guilt, reconnected with their true purpose, finding harmony in their relationships as well as being a positive role model to their children.” She adds “There are so many mums juggling careers with motherhood and they’re real troupers for overcoming adversity when life chucks them a curve ball; they have to be a pillar of strength for themselves and their families.”

Mumazing Awards encourages you to nominate yourself or a mum you know for an award. The Mumazing Awards feature various categories to recognise the great achievements of mums, including the Business Mum Award, the Stay at Home Mum Award and more. The award categories also include recognition for supporting roles, including the Grandparent Award, the Man in Shining Armour Award and the Best Mum Employer Award. The categories have been kindly sponsored by local businesses – who’ve supported the awards with their time and services – including Radiance MediSpa, Bubblegum Design, Solicitors Title, Munchkins Day Nursery, Energy Hair, Astley Media, Louis Joyce and Purity Spa.

Those taking part in the Mumazing Awards will be invited to celebrate the amazing mums of Devon at a fabulous lunch and awards ceremony, sponsored by Crealy Great Adventure Park and supported by Devon Life, on Thursday 21 July at Woodbury Park Hotel and Golf Club. The awards will be judged by a panel of credible judges and announced at the Mumazing Awards lunch. To apply or nominate someone you know for an award visit The closing date for nominations is 24 June 2016.
