You either have to run new wires for your switch or put the switch on it.

I'm guessing you're in the UK or similar. You may want to include that in your profile.

If you want a wall mounted switch, you'll have to run a cable from the light box to a wall box and switch.

I found a site that seems to be useful to our UK friends. I believe they have a forum also.
