Outside Robben Island's more-than-a-century-old church, Mrs C.S. Haugerud, an islander since 1946, said: "I will be sorry to go. It's clean and open - no traffic noises and petrol fumes. I started the Sunday school on the island. I don't know who will take over from me." Mrs Haugerud is in charge of catering in the wardroom of S.A.S Robben Eiland, the training establishment.
