Comments (0)

Name: Pete Conway

Age: 34

Lives: Ashbourne

Married: no

Children: yes

I am: a hard-working father who loves his job and living in Ashbourne.

Three things I like: Shrovetide, Derby County FC and my family and friends.

Three things I don’t like: Time wasters, people who let me down and dirty cars. And Nottingham Forest and Down’ards for two days a year.

Up’ard/ Down’ard: Up’ard.

Born and bred:

I was born in Ashbourne and grew up with my brother and sister, Iain and Melanie. My parents are Wendy and Jim Conway. Dad has been a well-known referee in Ashbourne for 30 years.

Family matters:

I live with my partner, Charlotte Haighton and we have two children, Georgia, three and Bethany 11 months.


I worked in sales until 18 months ago, when I set up my own business, Conway Automotive off Belle Vue Road. I supply all types of parts for cars, vans and lorries as well as offering a specialised valeting service. It’s a bit different because people can either bring their vehicle in for a full state-of-the-art valet, or we can cater for smaller specific jobs. Starting a new company is definitely a challenge, but I enjoy meeting new customers and being able to provide the best service.

I am best at:

Finding solutions to unusual problems.

My ideal holiday:

With my family on a sun-soaked beach.

Favourite food:

Gammon, egg and chips.

Inspired by:

All the people who got me to where I am today.

Proudest moment:

The birth of my two beautiful daughters.

If you ruled the world:

I’d cut the duty on fuel and beer.


That I put my family first and never let anybody down. And that I supported the Rams through the good times and the bad.
