Sarah has lived near Chilton Foliat on the western edge of Berkshire all her life. She runs and manages the Chilton Estate.

In 2010, she was President of the Newbury and District Agricultural Society, and The Royal County of Berkshire Show.

Sarah served as High Sheriff of The Royal County of Berkshire 2017 - 2018. She has been a Governor of three Berkshire schools over the past twenty years.  She is a Trustee of the Greenham Trust which supports local charities and organisations for the benefit of people in West Berkshire and North Hampshire.
