Established in 1955, The Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of Great Britain was registered by the Kennel Club in January 1957 and is the national Wheaten breed club for Great Britain.
Whilst the Club has expanded and adapted to meet the needs of today, the original purpose of the club at registration remains unchanged:

Those of you who were at Wheaten Fun Day South will know we were making a film of the day, and we are very pleased to be able to release it to you now. If you've never been to a Wheaten Fun Day before, take a look at the highlights of a great day in Steventon and get ready for several extra events being planned in new locations next year to celebrate the Club's Diamond Jubilee.
Photos wanted for the 2015 calendars!
Following the success of previous Wheaten calendars, these will be repeated again this year. There will be two sizes of the wall calendar (A3 and A4) as well as a separate 12 month desk calendar with different photos. Please send your entries to Judy Creswick by post or e-mail by 1st September to: 96 Newgate Street, Morpeth, Northumberland NE61 1BU or email@example.com A free calendar will be sent to anyone whose photo is included.
Seasonal pictures, pictures associated with holidays and photos of Wheatens doing things are very useful. Landscape ones are best for the big A3 calendar.
Wheaten Day North
A successful Wheaten Day North took place in beautiful Cochrane Park, Alva,
Clackmannanshire on Saturday, August 16th. It was a trifle breezy thanks to the tail end of Hurricane Bertha, but dry. Twenty two Wheatens and a Kerry brought their families to take part in a variety of fun classes, some relays and a short agility course. Lynn Aitchison had an ice breaker quiz – a Commonwealth one this time – and a short training spot full of useful tips on "Taking Control". Linda Salisbury had brought the newly restocked bookstall and did a thriving trade. Jacquie & Colin Barton did make it four Wheaten Days in a row – this must be a record!

Wheaten Fun Day Midway
There was a good turnout for this years Midway event. The weather was warm and dry allowing the novelty classes and the agility course to be done outside. A good time was had by all. Click here for some random photo's from the day.
We had an issue with the quality of this years Yearbook. We have finally received replacemnts for the faulty ones. If you would like to exchange a faulty one, then they will be available from all future club events starting at the Midway Fun Day on the 22nd of June. Please note that you need to bring the faulty book with you in order to have a replacement. Please contact the club if you cannot return the book in person to an event. New 2014 Yearbooks are available to purchase at all club events or from our online shop: http://www.wheaten.org.uk/index.php/shop
The shop is currently being revamped to ensure you are provided with an array of fabulous products, all designed with the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier in mind!
