So what are they connecting to? That's a plastic switch.
i dunno. It might not be earth and I could be talking nonsense. It makes 8 wires in total so I sort of assumed some were earths

Sorry, I miscounted. 8 wires. I just wanted to say each of those wires can be 'Live', depending on the switch positions. None are earth, which you don't need anyway.
Whoever does this needs to work out which wire is power in, which goes to the light, and how the connections to the switch at the other end of the room are configured. If you have the test equipment and knowledge you should be able to work this out. If you're not comfortable tracing the circuit, get an electrician in.

that is really good advice. Thank you. I think I could do it, but will be safe and get a professional I think.
Thanks
