She is probably best known as a top-level Tournament Director in both Wales and England. Sarah has been trying to play more bridge since moving to South Wales five years ago and is delighted to have made it to the Welsh Lady Milne twice.


She spent a large portion of her working life helping to run a family restaurant with her brother, sister-in-law and mother and really enjoyed managing the front of house and assisting with wedding and events planning.


All of her work now involves various aspects of bridge, directing all sorts of events from club games through congresses to internationals; teaching beginners and improvers; and latterly helping players and clubs get online and keep playing through the pandemic.
