Welcome! Let’s get to know our neighbors.
We know genuine connections with neighbors next door and business owners down the street make for a more meaningful experience. And we believe getting to know people in our community should be simple. That’s why Stroll meets you where you’re at – your mailbox.
We are grateful to serve this amazing community.
Every month, we share stories from and about different residents within our neighborhood.
See below for a few of our recent favorites.

Stroll is made possible by the great local businesses who support this magazine. If you’re ever in need, please keep them in mind!
Meet Your Publisher
North Carolina native Sheila Kilpatrick has lived in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia for 35 years. She is the author of "Anastasia's Rain," a children's picture book, and has a background in graphic design and photography. Her love of Ghent, sales experience, and interest in writing led her to partner with N2 eight years ago to produce Stroll Ghent.
When Sheila isn't busy meeting with advertising sponsors and Ghent residents, you may find her grooming horses in Pungo or visiting the dog park with her dog, Slim.

I've really enjoyed being involved with Ghent Living Magazine, both as a business and as a Ghent resident. I enjoy reading the articles every month about local businesses and it has helped me create a greater marketing presence in my local community as well.
Resident and Business Owner
Love this local magazine! Not only does it tell me more about my very interesting neighbors and Ghent community happenings, which I might not have known about, it also features wonderful advertisers known for their reputable and quality work. And this is all free! I look forward to getting each issue and sitting with a cup of coffee for a few rare moments of quiet.
Fabulous magazine with wonderful businesses featured as well as a great way to connect with our neighbors. Sheila does an incredible job bringing Ghent together!
