Trish Thompson

Centre Manager

I’ve worked at McLaren Leisure since 2000, which I’m dedicated to. Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to see the organisation from most aspects, as a swimming teacher, giving fitness inductions, marketing, membership, events and health and safety.

I work closely with the staff and Volunteer Board of Directors, where collectively we have the aims of providing sport and leisure for locals and visitors to the area.

I grew up in Callander but back then wasn’t fortunate enough to have had facilities like McLaren Leisure to enjoy. Having raised my children in Callander, I know the huge significance of having such facilities available for use. My goals are to keep moving forward, meeting our customers needs as much as possible, balancing sustainability issues and planning for flexible future.

I like spending time with my family, cycling, hill walking with my dogs, reading and yoga – Namaste
