Your Committee

Eve Croucher

Chair / Administration

Eve Croucher

Having previously worked as an SRN has given me an understanding of many foot health related issues. In 2003 I retrained as an FHP and have not looked back. I enjoy the independence of being able to offer great foot care to lovely patients. Being part of the SCP&FHP has given the opportunity to learn and share many laughs with good friends and colleagues.

I now work very part time, giving me time to enjoy walking in our village, reading, drawing and painting 😊

Angela Nobes

I qualified with SMAE in 1994 & have been a member of the HCPC since 2004.

I am as passionate now about good footcare as when I first qualified and have been fortunate enough to work around a family life, part-time & full-time. I have a surgery in the Petersfield/Liss area, as well as a few domiciliary patients who were some of my first clients. I sing with Rock Choir (don’t ask!), love walking with the dog (& husband!) & more recently enjoying the antics of 2 grandchildren.

Hi I’m Maggie, I used to work as a Biomedical Scientist in the biochemistry laboratory at Southampton General Hospital. After adopting three baby girls from China and homeschooling them for 11 years, I decided to return to work. Due to my husband having an ingrown toe nail sorted in our kitchen, I was introduced to the world of foot health care.

I retrained in 2016 at SMAE and graduated in 2017. Since then I have been running my own business visiting people in their own homes to treat their feet. I love my job and meet all sorts of clients who have made my life richer by sharing their life stories with me. It is an honour to serve on our committee where we can help the members of our association to keep their skills up to date and offer help and encouragement. When I’m not working I’m my youngest daughter’s carer. I love pottering in the garden, cooking foods from different countries, working out at the gym and reading. I am an active member of our church and am involved with the local Chinese community.

Lynne Sillence

Vice Chair / Media

Lynne Sillence

I worked as a nursing auxiliary before commencing my SRN training in London. I stayed home until my youngest child was at secondary school by which time I had become a full time carer for my mum-in-law. I then trained as a Foot Health Practitioner and love my work which feels more like a pleasure than a job. I enjoy the opportunities to learn new skills through the SCP&FHP association. Working part time gives me the chance to enjoy gardening and various activities with my church community.
