This flat is named after - Eluned Phillips (October 1914 – January 2009)

Eluned Phillips was a poet from Cenarth which is a village bordering Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire. She is the only female poet to have twice won the prestigious award of the Crown at the National Eisteddfod of Wales. The first time was at the Eisteddfod in Bala in 1967 when the subject of the poetic competition was ‘Folds’. She submitted two poems, winning the crown with one poem while her second poem came within the best three poems in the competition. The winning poem follows three religious folds of the world - Islam, Christianity and Buddhism. The second time she won the Crown, was at Anglesey Eisteddfod in 1983. The subject this time was ‘Knots’. Following the war between Britain and Argentina over the Falkland Islands, Eluned Phillips took a different attitude than that of a boastful Margaret Thatcher. The poem refers to the suffering of soldiers on board the Sir Galahad, and her sorrow that people with a common Welsh ancestry from both Wales and Patagonia were killing each other.
