Changing a House Name

Behind the Cinema Bookshop there are two houses, The Pines and The Firs. The Firs is a B&B.
I was chatting to the chap from The Pines last week when we were sorting out the recycling bins, and I noticed that one was marked "Madigans". This was the name of the family who built the cinema. The chap said they've changed the name of The Pines - partly because there aren't any pines there any more - there used to be trees near the entrance to the Cinema - and partly because they thought it was important to keep some memory of a name associated with Hay alive.
