The Ely-Ribe Association brings together residents of Ely and the surrounding area who are interested in furthering the twinning links with Ribe.

Members meet around four times a year for social gatherings in Ely, and have the opportunity to participate in official twinning visits, either as hosts in Ely or guests in Ribe.
