Her varied and sometimes challenging role in Reception means she'll turn her hand to most things, always greeting visitors with a smile. Sarah has a small farm and over the years has raised cattle, pigs, turkeys as well as growing lots of veg. She also has a passion for motorcycles and helping her son with driving lessons.
