Happy Birthday Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of GB

2015 is the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of GB's Diamond Jubilee. I wish to congratulate all Officers, Committee and membership, past and present, and look forward with anticipation at marking and celebrating this magnificent achievement at the various planned club events throughout the year ahead.

Chairwoman SCWT Club of GB



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: 


1. To maintain and protect the breed type according to the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier Breed standard approved by the Kennel Club;

2. To promote sensible breeding of the Soft-Coated Wheaten with regard to type, soundness and temperament;

3. Safeguard the health of the breed by all possible means;

4. To provide assistance to breeders and new owners; to provide information to prospective owners on breed characteristics;

5. To keep members regularly informed of the points of interest concerning the breed and progress of the Club;

6. Advance the interests of the breed by supporting shows and by educating judges;

7. To promote the interests of the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier by any other means.

Jules and Verne


We invite all SCWT friends both at home here in the UK and abroad to  join in our 60th Diamond Jubilee  celebrations by participating in  a Jubilee venture which is aimed to reach as many of you as possible.  

To  mark the SCWTC of GB’s Diamond Jubilee two goodwill Ambassadors, namely Jules and Verne have been created to carry our good wishes to all the SCWT family both home and abroad. Each mascot has been given a formidable remit.  Jules is to visit as many accommodating homes as possible around the UK whilst Verne is to circumnavigate the globe.  
 Both carry their own travelogue and globetrotter Verne has his own passport.  It is hoped both mascots will pass  through as many hands as possible with their adventures being photographed and recorded for posterity.
 Crufts was the starting points of their incredible journeys and both were successfully waved off amongst much excitement and razzmatazz.  Jules was passed to SCWTCGB President Judy Creswick to begin her grand UK tour, heading off to Northumberland in the North East of England whilst Verne was presented to Margaret Gray  from Australia.
 Verne’s first point of call  with Margaret was Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland before travelling south to Eire and the Celtic Winners’ Show in Dublin, taking in a variety of locations including Co. Mayo and Co. Wicklow.  Next stop was Australia where an expectant group of friends patiently waited for him to assist him on his mammoth dog travels.
 We need you to pass Jules and Verne forwards  to complete their missions.  BUT like Cinderella, they have a deadline. They MUST be back home here in the UK by October 31st 2015 as both are to be Guests of Honour at the SCWTC of GB’s big birthday bash,  the Gala Dinner and Dance to be held at the Royal Court Hotel, Coventry.  Jules is our main raffle prize  and Verne will be auctioned.  Both will take place at the Gala dinner. All proceeds  in aid of the Jubilee Fund which is supporting our designated charity Support Dogs. If you require raffle tickets contact  Treasurer Alison  Fallon and if you want to bid for Verne please pop your sealed bid in his travel case. Gala tickets are available now, and the hotel is offering us a favourable accommodation rate.
 If you wish for either mascot to visit you or are prepared to be a national co-ordinator for your country please contact Jules' and Verne's’ official route planner Alison on  or via this website.   We simply ask  you write a few words summarising their stay with you in their travelogue, sign Verne's passport,  then take a photograph and send it to Alison so it can be posted on our website and Facebook pages where you can follow both  their journeys to date.
 Thank you to everyone who has been involved especially idea originator Hilary Blandford and creator Liz Hill  and to every one of you who are passing on our Diamond good wishes  from us to you, our world wide Wheaten family. Where in the world  will these two intrepid explorers go?  Watch this space!!
