Storing flour in the UK

I've been looking at buying some flour in a bigger sack.  I usually buy flour in 3kg bags and have various other small bags of rye etc.  As the 'B-word`' seems to be finally happening, I was going to buy a 10kg sack of white bread flour from Wessex Mills just in case but I'm not sure how to store it?  It's not a massive sack and I tend to make 2 - 3 loaves a weeks.

Can you buy Gamma Lids?

I’ve used them for years with great success.

that you can put into your flour container, and freeze them individually.  Frozen flour will keep for a long time that way.  The only catch is that you must have the freezer space.

Best of luck
