As soon as my zucchinis flower and produce fruit they quickly seem to die off, stop growing and die off before they are even 120mm long?

Pollinate by hand with a cotton bud or break off the male flower and rub it on the female flowers. Check if bees are about in the morning - put some water out for them. Plant some flowers near by to attract the bees.

Sometimes early female flowers don't set as they haven't been pollinated. It could also be water stress but I rather think the first. Give them a bit of time and they should settle down.
