Welcome to the site.

The needing a bump start thing could be a flat battery, but on my old 1995 1.4 it was something to do with the imobiliser. If i turned the key it would turn over but not fire, but if it was bumstarted it would start up and run.

If you dont have a battery tester, pop the battery to halfords and they can do a free battery test for you :)
