Town Clock / St Michael's bells

Seems like the hammer on the 3rd bell (the tonic of the Westminster Quarters, roughly A-flat here) is resting on the bell after the chime has struck, muting it somewhat. It's been like that for a couple of days. Anyone know who maintains it?

The clock is wound by the town ranger who works for LTC

Antique clock shop is run by Bill Bruce. Fantastic clocksmith. Lewes used to produce the clocks for most of Sussex.
